Small Yard? No Problem! Building a Deck That Makes the Most of Your Limited Space

If you are like many families, you may have been dreaming of the day when you can install a deck in your backyard. But before you start, it’s important to carefully consider your requirements to ensure you are satisfied with the end result. For instance, you may require more space if you enjoy entertaining friends and family. However, a smaller deck may suffice if you only plan to grill out occasionally or dine at a small table outdoors. In the following post, your local deck contractors will address your decking concerns.

Design and logistics for your deck

The first consideration when planning a deck is the dining space. For instance, if you have a family of four who will sit around a five-foot-long table, they will still require ample room to push out their chairs and move around the table safely. Therefore, factoring in this space requirement while planning the deck is necessary. Additionally, it's important to maintain some green space in your yard to preserve the outdoor feel and appreciate nature. While planning the deck size, ensure it helps maintain the remaining green space.

To better understand your deck's size, you can bring out your patio furniture, barbecue, planter boxes, and other items and arrange them as you would on the deck. Using string and stakes, you can delineate the boundaries of your future deck space and determine how it will look and how much yard space will be left. Once you have determined the appropriate deck size, you can contact Country Construction to get started with the installation process.

Compliance with building and zoning codes

As a responsible deck contractor, Country Construction is well-versed in the local zoning and building codes that apply to deck construction in Northern Colorado. It's essential to follow these codes while building a deck, and we can ensure that your deck meets all the necessary requirements. Generally, decks that stay within the house's boundaries on either side don't cause any zoning issues. However, it's always better to verify the regulations with the local building department before starting any construction. In some cases, you may also need to obtain a property survey to determine the property lines accurately.

Consider the view when designing

Consider the surrounding area of your property, especially the stunning mountain views Northern Colorado offers when deciding on the perfect location for your new deck. It's important to step outside and see how the views make you feel, as they may differ slightly once the deck is built. Keep in mind that raising the deck by a few feet will alter your perspective and may affect your privacy. For instance, if you have a six-foot fence that provides privacy in your backyard, a raised deck may expose you to your neighbors. To maintain your privacy, you can plant trees within the fence line or arrange the deck boards in a way that will redirect the view away from unwanted sights. A trusted decking contractor, such as Country Construction, can also provide suggestions on creating a space that meets your needs and expectations.
