Online Deck Design
and Plans (San Diego area Deck Design-Build below)
A well thought-out custom
Home Deck Design should be thought of as a wise investment, and
not as an added expense, and is in fact the most important part
of your project !
Based in San Diego, California, WoodsShop is
a group of people interested only in the finest quality and detail.
All of our Deck Designs will be upper-end projects which will cost
considerably more then your "average" deck because of the materials
used, higher level of skills needed, and amount of time it takes
to complete a project with our level of details !
I have wonderful Deck and Patio Design capabilities
as you can tell from this website, and only create tailored, custom
deck and patio designs. I like to create something nicer for each
new project, and welcome your input during the process.
Have you seen a style, or certain design element
in one of our deck or patio designs that you like, and think might
suit your site ? You start by sending me an accurate site plan to
scale, being careful to note the important measurments such as the
dimensions of the house (with location and sizes of any windows
and doors), and the dimensions of the site itself including any
significent hardscape and softscape features. Also important are
elavation differences, for instance, the height of the door sill
from existing grade, and any other significant grade
the proposed project site.
I also need some good .jpg digital photos of the area and it's surroundings. Most importantly, some descriptive and detailed notes from you about your
ideas, needs, and desires, and any other factor that could influence
your deck design, such as, where your view is, and which sides of
the deck would need screening because of neighbors or unsightly
views, and where you would like seating, shade, or other deck structures.
Also research if there are zoning, setback, historical district,
or other restrictions that apply.
As soon as I have this information, and properly
understand the scope of your project, I will supply you with a
Cost Estimate for your Design. You are allowed 2
revisions to my Design ideas, ffter those 2 revisions,
if there is further design work needed, it will be billed at $75
The cost for my Deck
and Patio Designs vary quite a bit, as each of your requests is
My fees range from $400 up to $1,000,
with $500 being an average.
I also offer some Deck Plans of our Already-Designed
Decks that you've seen on our website, to save you the Design fees.

the more custom elements that make our work so special, like deck
railings, seating components, screens, arbors, pergolas, and other
shade, deck, and garden structures.
Local San Diego area Design - Build Projects
You send us the information as described above,
then I will come spend the morning at your site, meet you, and get
a good feel for the area, further enhancing the Design Process.
I'd like you to send me a few initial pictures of the area (so I can arrive a little better prepared) and, provide me with an accurate Site Plan to Scale if possible.
Being local, we can work together as we refine our Project. As soon
as we work up a
Beautiful Design I'll be able to give you a price
for the construction. The Design Fees
ranges from $300 to $600, with $400 being the average. For pulling Permits and preparing Construction Docs and Plans I charge $300, plus any permit fees, usually $300 to $600.
If you are outside of our local San Diego area,
I'll consider traveling for an Onsite Visit with you. I loosely
structure this round trip travel time fee at $40 per hour and $.50 a mile for Projects
in California, based on travel time using Map Quest, with Spring
Valley, Calif. 91977 as the
Starting Point. We will
consider traveling out of state, or Anywhere on the Planet, if it's for
a Special Project which warrants special, personal Design.
We generally don't travel
outside of our local area for the actual
construction, but there are exceptions!

* A note about your local Building Department
should you need a building Permit. Some Building Departments
won't accept plans that weren't prepared by the Owner, or an
Architect, Engineer, or Builder who is licensed in your state.
You may, or may not need to pay a local Professional to review
and seal the plans so that your Building Department will accept
them. These issues should be researched before going ahead with
your Deck Design.
