deck designs

We are looking to build a new deck, and I'd like to build it myself but I live in Washington DC, where getting a permit is rather beaurocratic. Who do I hire who can draw up detailed plans for the deck that will make the permit easy to get?

Check the Yellow Pages under 'Drafting Services'.

You could always stop in at a major lumber yard and see who does drawings there. If there is no in-house available it may be a good source since they work with those that do design and drafting for various projects. They may have some good recommendations and they would be more resonable if we are talking about a residential building designer.

I get alot of work thru these means. Also you call your local NARI (National Assoc. of the Remodeling Industry) for references as well.

Hope this helps!
