How can I (properly) build a simple rectangular deck?

We had a guy build a second half to our deck a few years ago and its completely falling apart. I want to rip it apart and rebuild, but I dont know much about the necessary spacing and depth and width of the wood and stuff. The deck is 10x20 and it's probably about 6 feet above our backyard. Are there any plans you guys can give me or just general advice?

Thanks!

There's a handy publication called DCA 6, published by the American Forest and Paper Association. If you've spent any time on this sub-forum, you've seen countless links to it. Print a copy of it, and then study it. It will provide most if not all of the information you need to build a deck that will last a long time.
