Balcony/Deck Construction Stories and Recommendations
We live in a two-story house on the west side of the street on a hill and are considering building a balcony/deck off our living room on the second floor- view side. So many people seem to have these balconies around us, but I don't see them getting much use (privacy? weather?), so that gives me pause. I have also heard a balcony can make the lower level of the house quite dark.
Does anyone have any experience making the decision about installing a balcony like this that they could share? If you loved the person you went with for design or construction, we would also appreciate recommendations.
