Medium height deck with exposed posts

This deck is designed by a architect, he does not know too muck about design a deck, so he made the structure the same as the house, which is muck different from a normal deck structure. But his design turned out to be beautiful, especially when the posts, which usually should be hidden underneath the deck, is exposed. The exposed posts became a really wonderful design element.

To match this unusual design, we changed the original stair plan, which is too ordinary. I saw a group of interior all solid lumber stairs pics on a brochure, then I decide to copy it to this project.
