how to do a cut out / hole area in a deck

Recommended Posts

I have to deign a deck that has an existing tree in the middle. So I was wondering if someone know how to cut out an area of the deck where the tree is.

 

so I build a let say square deck 20' x 20' and now I want to cut out a 4'x4' area where the tree is. how is this done?

using invisible walls is one way , make a small 4'x4' room in the middle of the deck from invisible walls , connect those 4 walls to the deck railing if needed ( version 10 and before ,see image), set the room spec. to "open below" and turn off ceilings and roofs for the room too. On each invisible wall's DBX >general tab> check the box "Railing" as well .so you don't see drywall in the hole.

 

One of the Deck tools may work similar , have a look on the KB for tutorials about Hot-tubs  too.
