Thanks to record-high fuel prices, many families are choosing to vacation at home this summer rather than spending hard-earned cash filling up the gas tank. 

Many people are choosing instead to increase their backyard enjoyment by adding a deck or making enhancements to their current deck. Consider adding a wood arbor for more privacy or wood bench seating along the sides to create that perfect party atmosphere!

You can create your own oasis of luxury at home for much less than the cost of a luxury vacation.
