Entry deck needs a drawbridge for a wheelbarrow.

Entry deck needs a drawbridge for a wheelbarrow

Removable sections of this entry deck allow walk-through access to the back garden. The 21-inch-high deck runs from the front door to a side fence, providing a sunny space for entertaining at the same level as the indoors.

Along the fence, the deck has three 40- by 40-inch sections, each light enough for one person to lift out. They rest on beams that run parallel to the fence and support the rest of the 2-by-6 decking.

Design was by architect Tom Ward of Village Design Group in Petaluma, California.
