Decks are popular backyard features, but they also make for dramatic front entries. Instead of removing those concrete front steps, save some time by building a wood deck over and around them.
A well designed front porch or deck is an inviting feature on most homes. Add a bench swing or a few chairs to create another usable space in your home to congregate and enjoy.
Don't let your concrete steps prevent you from adding a front deck. If your steps have a solid foundation and aren't crumbling, you can actually build your deck right over it. Check out the video above for an explanation on scribing and framing your deck and the link below has more information on the building a front deck.
