Simple 10x20 deck

I have a ranch style home and want to build a 10x20 deck on the end leading to the front door. This deck will not be attached. I am not a carpenter, nor can I afford one. I need to know how to set up the things the 4x4 posts set on and also how to frame it out so I can nail planks across it. Basically, I need plans or ideas for a basic 10Wx20L deck. Ole lady wants some kinda seating things, benchs built in by the railing, that will come after its build. How do I get started learning about this? any cad progs out there free or d/l'able plans and/or worksheets. I think you put like 2x6's one on each side of the 4x4 posts do you not? These would extend from the house out 10' to a post in the ground. Do this like five times, then nail the planks on top? Thanks for any help.
