Rooftop Deck Photos: HGTV Green Home 2009

Overlooking the picturesque neighborhood of Tradition and offering a bird's-eye view of the backyard, the HGTV Green Home 2009 rooftop deck is ideal for entertaining, nature watching or star gazing.

  • 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.
