Complete a plan (overhead) view

A plan view shows the deck as viewed from above. It illustrates the exact location of piers, beams, and joists. It also may include a partial view of the decking, railing, and any other structures attached to the deck. The drawing shown combines a view of the framing with the decking installed above the beams and posts. For more complex decks, these two views can be drawn separately. Draw the foundation and framing plan first, then use tracing paper to produce the finished view.

Include all dimensions overall length and width, joist and beam spacing, and material sizes.
