The original screened porch and deck were constructed fairly well, so we were able to leverage the basic structure of both of them. The original stairs landed in an awkward place and made travel from the deck to the driveway difficult at best. The owners also wanted to incorporate a hot tub into the new space. Our design created a new large deck area in an otherwise wasted space. This setup perfectly for a hot tub. The result is a stunning outdoor living space that can be used to entertain for large parties as well as small gatherings. The traffic pattern to get from the back door to the driveway has been greatly improved, and will now be used with much greater frequency.
