A well designed deck will enhance scenic views, provide a smooth transition from inside your home to the outside, and optimize your backyard regardless of the layout — at grade-level, an uneven terrain or a deep slope.

And what about a visual transition from inside to out?  Will the deck be visible from the inside of your home and if so, how will it blend with the interior space? Read the rest of this entry »
