I am planning on extending my deck with a ground level floating deck. I will be using cedar. I am just planning to use concrete blocks to level the deck. Attached are the measurements. I am wondering if you can please help me with costing estimate.

Thank you,

Sorry Jonathan,

We auge holes 4' deep and 12" wide. Then fill 1' with concrete. Instal the 6" 6" post. And fill concrete to the surface. That is the only way to have a permanent solid structure to build off. I cant give you an idea of cost for a floating deck.

floating decks are same as permanent anchored structures just no pilings cost...typically from $20-25/sqft all inclusive
