The back porch on this Lake Norman home was penned in by a railing and load-bearing columns. There was no place to soak up the sun and not enough room for al fresco dining. The homeowners wanted a wide, open deck with a hot tub and plenty of space for lounge chairs, a dining table, and barbeque. They dreamed of soaking in their hot tub and gazing at their million-dollar view with nothing between them and the lake but trees. To help achieve this, raised planters were built around the perimeter of the deck to eliminate most of the railings. The hot tub was nestled into the deck, providing a clear view of the lake.
