Downloading your Purchased File(s)

The checkout completion page will have a download button at the bottom of the page to download your purchased file(s).

You can also find your account, if you are logged in, by clicking 'My account' in the header of any page. This will take you to your account page. Click the 'Files' tab to see a list of your purchased files. Click the link to download any file you've purchased.

Handling the Downloaded ".zip" File

All deck plan files and images are compressed into a .zip file to simplify downloading, and minimize storage requirements and download times. Once you download the compressed .zip file, you will need to unzip it using a compression utility such as WinZip or 7-zip (recommended).

Once you install WinZip, or 7-zip, all you need to do is right-click on the .zip file and select 'Extract Here' from the menu and the files will be extracted to the current directory.

DIY Deck Plan File Formats

The deck plan files are in .pdf format. You can view the .pdf plans using the free Adobe reader software commonly available on most computers. If you do not have Adobe Reader, it's available for free from Adobe.

Any included images are .jpg or .png files.
