hi houzzer experts! I wanted some advice on the do and do nots of decks. my yard is on a sloping deck with 10 steps down from the backdoor to the yard ground. I had initial plans on getting a deck built behind my dining room (and opening up the dining room window) but my drive through garage is only 2M high and accessing the laundry and garage will be difficult so I my next thought is to deck the existing back porch and across towards bathrooms and towards pool fence line ( looking at approx 10x5m deck) and then building a pergola on the east side of the deck
q1. will this look funny?
q2. is it weird having a deck where you can walk past a bathroom and toilet
q.3 is there a better option out there?
I've had 2 builders come in and suggest that I build a deck over an existing concrete area south of the pool fence but I feel like there's no flow from the house to the outside entertainment area and itll be nice to access a deck without having to track down 10 flights of steps.
