What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kit Pollard added this to Deck Days
Working with the existing landscape is important when building a deck - why build one if you're just going to clear the yard of anything cool? I love the way this deck is built around the cool, old tree. It feels like part of the house and part of the decor.
Kit Pollard added this to Keep Your Balance: Cool Railings
This shaded deck is cool for a lot of reasons - the tree is definitely one of them - and the railing complements the overall look. With a combination of wood to match the house and metal, the rail is unobtrusive and matches the woodsy modern look of the house.
Be prepared for chillier nights. You can get the same heat as this fancy outdoor fireplace from a fire pit or even a little chiminera (chiminea? What the heck are those things called?)
8. Stretch balcony season out with heat. While not everyone can have a fireplace like this one, even a simple heat lamp or fire pit can let you enjoy chilly nights outside - just make sure to put safety first.
Becky Harris added this to 10 Ways to Bedeck Your Deck
Plan around trees. Literally. This doesn't always work out, but it's wonderful when you are able to save a tree by cutting the deck around it.

I like the wire-railings, as it gives visibility but also safety. Then again, it doesn't provide much privacy for balcony activities...

I like this deck. I like the railing style. I am envisioning that this would be the deck that we would access from the upstairs. Outdoor fireplace is cool but probably not something we would ever use. -Amy I actually love the idea of an outdoor fireplace or fire pit. I would use it. Not often, but I would use it. -Caroline
