We are about to embark on getting our deck built, finally. Below are some designs we are considering. Does anyone have any thoughts that would help lean us toward one design over another. We are limited to about 16 feet In width due to daylight windows, but are considering an angle above the window to allow us to extend the deck to 19/20 feet. Does the angle seem ok? We are also debating the stairs going down in the middle, towards the garage area of the house, or directly down towards the backyard, or towards the house. The towards the house option is probably my least favorite, but I think it blocks the sunlight coming in through the window the least. The other thing to note is that the elevation of the house is about five feet on one side and about 3 feet on the side of the stairs.
Appreciate any ideas, suggestions you may have to share.
