The first step in how to build a hot tub deck is to choose your design and to gather information.  You can find a number of pieces of information on the internet as well as building plans.  These plans will often include the kinds of wood that you need as well as the tools you may need to assemble them together.  Print out a few different forms of these decks and then decide which one will work best for your yard and your level of expertise.

How to Build a Hot Tub Deck

Buying the right equipment is imperative if you want to get the job done right the first time.  Using your list or by talking to a professional at a hardware store, make sure that you are buying more than enough wood to cover the needs of the project as well as the right tools - hammers, stains, brackets, screws, etc.  It's easier if you buy more than you think you need as this will minimize the trips back to the store mid-project.  And by taking the time to talk to the clerks at the store, you will also get their inside opinion of what you need to do and what you need to have in order to do it.

But the easiest way to learn how to build a hot tub deck is to help someone else build theirs.  Even if they're not a professional, just working with someone else can help you understand the basics.  You can also find many do it yourself classes taught at local hardware supply stores that you can attend for no charge.  They will often give you a plan of what you need and what you need to do, showing you how to avoid common mistakes along the way.
