As the deck grew around the house, consideration had to be given to access and site functionality. The client was particularly pleased with the simplistic step-down platform rather than the conventional "stringer" design, making the flow of the deck continue around the house uniformly.

I should also mention that the subfloor under the jacuzzi was reinforced for the additional weight. Inside the screened area also has reinforced girders and joists since the initial designed called for the jacuzzi to be there. Now he has options!
