The deck as seen from the 2nd floor window.This is the "problem" with the deck. It has 3 levels of fun, where we'd prefer 1 to maximize the surface area. Little kids and over-served adults are often in danger of breaking an ankle if they stumble between levels without paying attention.
Our plan is to consolidate the middle layer with the diagonal layer and build a screened porch over it. This will give us some room for eating and lounging. We are working out door placement and where to put the grill.
Stay tuned for updates.
