Default Walk-out basement deck

Hi, we are building an Oxford model with Tamarack and I've been wondering, when they do walk-out basements, do they include a deck outside of the main floor kitchen, or do they leave it open? It might be a little while before we can afford to build the big deck we want, but I was hoping there would be some way to access the back yard from the kitchen in the meantime. Thanks!

Best to get confirmation from sales office and the plans. Inclusions for the same builder can vary by site, city, phase.

Typically a deck is installed outside the main floor kitchen door and a few patio stones are placed outside the basement door. Stairs from the deck to the back yard is not always provided.

Thank you for your replies! We had a meeting with Tamarack yesterday and they said they would include a 10x10 deck outside the kitchen door.

Thats great. Are stairs included? It would be good to be able to let Lassie outside without going to the basement door.

Not at the moment, but they've had a lot of requests, so they are thinking about adding it as an upgrade option.
