  1. My husband and I have been seriously considering having a deck built in our backyard. We really want it to be ready for our summer barbecues and other social events. I really think design number 19 would definitely be something that we would want to have in our backyard. I really like the idea of having a hot tub and I absolutely love the built-in benches as it provides for a lot of seating. However, I would probably add a lot more cushioning.
