Some interesting deck layout plans include the one with two-stories, one with an open space, partial pergola covering a hot tub and a built-in sauna space and a deck design with a separated fire pit and conversation area. All of these and many other plans are available online for a fee as of 2016.
One interesting deck plan includes two stories. This plan is designed for a two-story home with the first level of the deck outside of the second story. Stairs descend half of a story, and then there is a second deck area with a wide open space underneath the decks. The upper most deck is shaped like a square while the second, smaller deck is octagon shaped.
Another interesting deck layout includes an open space, partial pergola covering a hot tub and a built-in storage space. This deck is designed for a single story home with the decking built on the ground. In the open space area, there is built-in wooden seating. The hot tub and sauna are placed next to each other.
An interesting layout for a deck includes a separated fire pit and conversation area. The conversation area and the fire pit are both octagon shaped. There is a single step up to reach the conversation area and three steps down for the fire pit.
