From the Forum: Building a Floating Deck in the Backyard of a Rental

    by

    A tenant is considering building a deck in the backyard of their rental, and is looking for advice. Assuming the landlord is on board with the project, what should the tenant know before proceeding? If the deck is floating just a few inches above the ground, would a permit be required? How can rats be deterred from taking up residence underneath the deck?

    Please chime in with your advice.
