D eck Post Holes & Foundation OVERVIEW Introduction This tutorial will guide you through the process digging the deck post holes and then mixing and pouring the concrete. Before the concrete completely sets, you will then position the precast concrete piers. You should have a fairly comprehensive list of materials for this project. If you have a pickup truck you can begin hauling the materials, otherwise, most home improvement centers will deliver. Be sure to inquire about delivery charges, if your order is large enough, the delivery may be free. Time to complete this project depends on the size of the deck and the level of help available, the times listed here are for two people on a 10’x 30’ deck with the house defining two sides of the deck. • Beginner - 7 to 9 hours • Intermediate - 6 to 8 hours • Advanced - 5 to 7 hours Check your layout from the Marking & Layout tutorial--check one more time to make sure the string lines are in the right place. Follow the mixing ratios of dry concrete mix and water, the final strength will be reduced if the ratios are off.
