Fall is the best time of year to use our deck. The leaves are changing, it's cool enough to light a fire and our days are just short enough so we can enjoy darkness before it's too late.
We are using our picnic benches along the railings and placed a spool table in the center to hold our drinks or dinner plates. The center hole is perfect for the umbrella if we need shade.
The circular shape makes it easy to pull up plenty of camp chairs for friends to join.
Just a quick step from the kitchen and there it is - an extra space to spread out and enjoy the cooler weather.
