We teamed up with Sadie Mae Johns (aka The Awesome Orange) to build a floating deck next to her pool so she can catch some rays and maximize her outdoor space. This modern–design deck was built with Simpson Strong-Tie® fasteners and connectors to ensure she has a safe, strong deck.
Sadie was inspired to build a floating deck in her backyard after eyeing a barren hill in her backyard. She decided to level the dirt and create space for a build. To bring her vision to life, Sadie used our free Deck Planner Software™.
Additionally, because her deck was square, she secured the corners with ep them from moving. Sadie also fastened her deck joists with 3“ Deck-Drive™ DSV Wood screws.
It’s the perfect project for sprucing up your backyard and making it even more fun to hang out by the pool. We love how her deck turned out and can’t wait to see what other projects Sadie has planned. You can learn more about Sadie’s floating deck on her blog where she takes you step by step through her build. Also, check out her YouTube video, Building a Floating Deck for instructions on how to DIY a floating deck for your own backyard.
