How To Build a DIY Floating Deck
Hi friends, I’m so excited to share our biggest and best DIY project to date! We partnered with Simpson Strong-Tie to build a floating deck and pergola for our neighbors. Our neighbors are a fellow military family and this is our welcome home gift for their deployed soldier. Pretty amazing, right? I mean, who wouldn’t want to come home to this gorgeous space?!
We’re thrilled to partner with a Simpson Strong-Tie because they proudly support our brave servicemen and women. What an amazing opportunity it’s been for us to be able to bless our neighbors with this beautiful new outdoor space that they can enjoy for years to come.
I’m sharing the entire tutorial on Simpson Strong-Tie’s brand new blog, Building Strong and will be splitting it up into two separate tutorials. Part One will show you how we built the floating deck and Part Two will cover the pergola project.

Strong-Tie connectors were an integral part of building this deck so that it’s safe and structurally sound. The deck measures about 14 feet by 16 feet, so it’s a pretty substantial size.
These were the parts we used for the floating deck:
I can’t wait to share the pergola build with you – we used the brand new Outdoor Accents™ line, which is both beautiful and structural. Stay tuned! In the meantime, check out the floating deck tutorial here.
