These pictures are all the motivation you need to build a deck.

Maybe you are on the fence (or the deck railing) about building a deck. You'd like to have one, but you're just not sure if you want to go for it. Between finding the right contractor, making time to plan the project, and laying out the cash, building a deck can be discouraging. But seriously? Look at these decks. Don't they make you want to build a deck?
