In some cases when a Homeowner wants to build a deck, they may want to build / buy over a short period of time. The ability to do this staging has been incorporated in the application. Staging allows for the design of deck but having the ability to purchase certain components so the design can be built in phases over time. For example start with framing in one phase then add the decking, railings and stairs in a second phase.
