Our house was a new build, and so it didn’t have a deck in the back yard. We didn’t even have stairs to walk out the patio door! This is what it looked like before:
I love Japanese influenced outdoor design. I fell like its intricate and modern without being too fussy. I also really wanted a pergola that I cold hang lanterns from for different holidays.
I adore my deck and the fact that I can entertain a lot of people on it.
