Two Story Deck Ideas?

Posted by cfisher1 (My Page) on

I want to buildor rather, have built by professionalsa two-story deck on the back of my house in Chicago. I want a very simple "off-the-shelf" rectangular wooden deck that is extremely common here. The city requires architectural stamped drawings for issuance of a building permit. My question is thisdoes anyone have such a deck?do you have your architectural drawings?...would you consider providing me with a copy (for a small fee Im sure)?

I would like to take an existing planhopefully nearly identicaland make the necessary modifications to suit my project. I have engineering and drafting background so I can handle the plan adjustments myself. I would however, like to avoid the cost of having an architect render the drawings for me. I would then of course have the modified plan stamped by an architect.

Good luck with that!

My friend in Washington DC is replacing a single car/single story garage with another Amish pre-fab one. What a pain in the butt to find an inexpensive solution to having an architect draw it, stamp it, etc. all for a pre-fab shed that will sit on a slab. And there's still a hold up of some sort.

If you have visions of enjoying your deck before winter returns, I'd suggest biting the bullet.
