Turn your problems into deck solutions

Use all of a narrow lot

Use all of a narrow lot

Decks for narrow lots with close neighbors often are only as wide as the house. Here, a deck completely fills a narrow city lot, putting a limited front yard to good use. High fences wrapping the structure keep the deck area private and buffer unwanted street noise.

Consult local codes
Elevated decks on steep slopes may require well-engineered foundations and framing. You may need to assess soil integrity, drainage, and earthquake vulnerability. Before building on a steep slope, check with your building officials; you might need to consult an architect or engineer.
