Default Backyard deck...

Hello Altoners,

I have my backyard facing the ravine. Just curious to know what I should take into consideration when building a deck.

I'm aiming at two options either hiring a company to build me a small wood deck as I only have a 36' lot. Or doing a kidney shape poured, stamped concrete look. Any body do this? if so, what's the COST of either and any recommondations on which companies to go with?

Thanks a bunch!

Hey Greeco,

The city just had a town hall meeting with regards to ravine lots such as yours. There are a number of conservation related restrictions you face because of the proximity to the ravine.

Might be a good idea to call the city to find out exactly what restrictions there are. The city set up an email address specifically for these issues as posted by Blair Lancaster on the Alton Village page. Blair is the Councillor of Ward 6.
