This is an awesome deck with some great furniture to boot. There is a lot you can do with this space, but I think the dominant one is probably larger cookouts with family and friends. In fact, I would go so far as to say you could even include an outdoor kitchen in this space. It looks like we have a below ground swimming pool in the background, which is great for family parties. On the upper deck we also have a nice picnic table for those time when it is just you and the kids hanging out, or just you sipping some coffee in the morning and looking out at the woods.
