Deck Ideas that Work by Peter Jeswald

This beautiful border designates the main artery from the deck to the other parts of the property. The robust greens create a nice contrast with the orange parts of the house.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Book to Know: 'Deck Ideas That Work'
Extra living room. Decks are great options for creating much-needed living space for older, smaller homes. With an overhead structure and some furniture, a deck greatly extends the home's living space.And don't stop there. Decks can be great places to enjoy family movie night; outdoor dining, cooking and entertaining; a soak in a hot tub; or a special retreat for some quiet outdoor time. It all starts with making a wish list that defines your goals.

Could maintain some of dutch colonial/gambrel aspect by leaving a few feet of the ends gambrel-style roof, and have one long dormer in between those ends... like pictured above. This could save a little bit of money on some interior modification.
