The shed has 2x6 stud framed walls unfinished on the inside. I took 2x4s and 2x6s and of course an air nailer and mitre saw to build it. I set the mitre saw to 10 degrees (saw being at 80 degrees I think) and shopped the 2x6s and 2x4s the same. Picking two studs that fit the deck widths best I cut the blocking and arms to fit the deck heights and depths. The arms do slope for better cantilever effect, so don't skip the blocking! Then air nailed to existing studs, pretty simple, and a two person job for air nailing the arms in place. It has been about 2 years and still doing well.

No one wants to see mine, trust me, They weigh a ton so I dragged them with the tractor to the side of the house and tipped them on their side, of course the side that faces out has to be the inside -_-

Ya, I should have mentioned that you do need a second person to lift them up there. I supposed you could use a chainfall and wrestle them. One thing is do not build higher than you and your most likely helper can lift the lightest deck.

I store mine over the winter on edge up against the wall of the garage. I use a ratchet strap around a screw into the stud to hold it up.



That is about the same thing I do.
