this looks like a good start for a newbie like me.
Before I embark, I would appreciate it if you tell me a few more ideas about:
1. What are the set of Tools ( powered and otherwise) I will need through out this project?
2. what do we do to treat the lawn / grass under the deck? Am sure it'll grow wild in a few weeks
3. Can I plan it in 2 phases, one to do the deck and one to set up the roof?
4. Lastly, for a 14'X12' deck (approx) where can I get a design plan and a List of Materials to purchase and specify at Home Depot / Lowes to minimize my effort and expense.
Any / every ideas are welcome.
