What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Book to Know: 'Deck Ideas That Work'
Take advantage of a view. Decks don't have to be large. Sometimes a deck for one person to sit and take in a view is the best approach. A deck area as a retreat for just one could be that quiet space that keeps you outdoors all the more.If you have a special view that you want to maintain, consider using cable rails or chain link fencing to create a visually unobtrusive rail that meets building code requirements. Cable rails can be costly, but a simple wood rail with vinyl-coated chain link is inexpensive and attractive.

A small deck is the ultimate spot for enjoying coffee, the paper and the view.

The positioning of the chair, the minimal railing, the fact that the deck is so compact speaks volumes as to how the space is used. This is a space for solitude.

f you have a special view that you want to maintain, consider using cable rails or chain link fencing to create a visually unobtrusive rail that meets building code requirements. Cable rails can be costly, but a simple wood rail with vinyl-coated chain link is inexpensive and attractive.
