Deck built on hill

We built the Trex deck to make it easier to enter the rear of our Home on a hill.

Before,we would walk down the slippery grass,when wet and walk up 7 risers to enter the great Room.

The 16' x 18'  is very spacious and the low risers on the patio makes a easy walk up hill,when coming from front of home.
