Above is the view from the boys' room. Yes, they have a door that leads straight to the deck. I was a little apprehensive about putting them in a room with direct access to the outside, but it hasn't been a problem yet.
Even though we own only up to the driveway you see in the bottom of the photo, it is wonderful to sit on the deck, talk on the phone, and look at the trees.
(This one is for you, Becky!!! ;-)
