Rooftop Deck Photos: HGTV Green Home 2009
Poised directly above the screened porch, the rooftop deck offers a great escape, whether at breakfast, lunch or sunset dining.
The entertaining space is accessible via a spiral staircase located just off the screened porch.
The deck, bordered by aluminum railing and paved with eco-friendly pavers, offers a bird's-eye view of the backyard.
The spiral staircase is set amid backyard landscape features including flowering beds blanketed with pine needle mulch and decorative pavers that create a path from the backyard to the front porch.
A Weather Wicker cafe table and chairs by Ebel invite outdoor dining.
Rainwater, captured in barrels, irrigates the deck’s raised gardens, planted with herbs and hearty tomato plants.
The rooftop deck provides a spectacular view of the neighborhood – the perfect perch to enjoy breakfast or a sunset dinner. Raised garden beds provide fresh herbs and tomatoes.
The deck affords a close-up view of the clerestory and metal roofing.
Sunset views from this get-away-from-it-all space are reason enough to linger long after dinner is served.
