That is a gorgeous deck. You added lots of amenities and extras to it that make it a nice outdoor living area. And, if your girlfriend liked it, that is all that counts.

That thing is huge! Are those satellite photos?

Great work and good balance of open space and gathering areas.

Great job and really nice lines. Very impressive! Love the hot tub being sunk and flush with the deck. We are doing something similar in our yard, however were digging a hole first then making a troft so to speak and lowering the tub into the ground leaving about 18 inches above ground then putting ledge stone around it. One question on the pergola on over the hot tub is that normal spacing or is that what she wanted. I would have thought there would be more slats closer together…. Again Awsome work….....

The spacing on the pergola slats was based on the idea that we didn’t want to completely obstruct the view of the sky because we like to see the stars… and it was all the lumber I had when I built it.

Thanks to everyone for all the nice comments.
