Decks are a great way to take full advantage of the year-round dining and entertainment possibilities of the California lifestyle.
In architecture, decks are simply defined as an outdoor floor attached to a house. But a well designed deck can be so much more; capture a view, turn a tiny sunlit space into an outdoor room or even tame a slope by transforming unusable yard space into a livable extension of your home.
Of course, a 'good' deck is truly suited to its site and surroundings, and otherwise is limited only by one's imagination. But done well, your new deck will expand the feeling of spaciousness by eliminating the boundaries between indoors and outdoors.
