This Golden Valley, MM home is a walk-out, but after looking at the back yard you have to wonder “a walk-out to where?” Step out the sliding glass door onto a small concrete walk/patio under the deck, walk a few feet across grass and you are standing at the edge of a ravine. With a large screen TV and family room just inside, it makes sense to extend the entertainment space to the outside – but where?

Limited space can be a challenge for a number of reasons. In this case, all materials had to be hand-carried to/from the back yard because access was steep and narrow.
Before: Access to this back yard was limited by a steep ravine.
After: The new back yard looks bigger with more space for entertaining. The wall provides extra seating for larger parties.
