A deck can be designed and built in many shapes and sizes but having a deck on or near the house adds living space without having to add-on with the expense of adding walls and changing the roof. An outdoor living space can be much more accommodating than one might think. Even during the Winter months the bay area climate gives us plenty of days to enjoy the outdoors. With the addition of simple led lighting and some furniture a deck can seem like an extension of the house. Decks can be a great place to relax, read a book, eat dinner or entertain with friends and family. The value often exceeds the investment as decks make the living space so much larger and give the home or building an open feeling that allows for a breath of fresh air.
