Long-legged decks ... they're steep site solutions.

For houses on steep sites, tall decks can create level surfaces that beckon you outdoors to take in expansive treetop views. These four decks are more like flat-roofed towers. They either rise separately (like the one at bottom left) or attach to a house and blend with its design.

Often, the deck surface gets all the design attention, while the potential appeal of its underpinnings (which is what the neighbors see) is all but ignored. Here, though, the lanky support sections of the four elevated decks not only provide the necessary reinforcement but also give each structure architectural distinctiveness.
