This little cabin had no deck and a really wet front yard. Even though there is no hydro, the owners use the cabin on many occasions throughout the year. They wanted a covered area for wet and hot days but also a sunny spot.
We built the deck with a perimeter stair around it so that people could sit on the edges and watch the bocchi ball tournaments. Steps all around the deck enables people to get off an on from all angles and seems to open up the space.
