Strange as it may seem, some people do not aspire to own such homes because they feel that it is a waste of their financial resources to pay the property tax and upkeep the place. These homes are usually bigger and you would need to employ some domestic help to maintain cleanliness.
I think patios are a better choice than decks. Patios last longer, require less maintenance, and allow greater design options than decks. Concrete is the most common material used for patios. Probably because it's relatively inexpensive, and builders use it extensively (because they won't be living in the house themselves).
Next, measure and mark the region that you will be paving. Allow an extra 6-8 inches beyond the furthest dimensions of the patio to provide a firm base for the entire area of pavers and to allow for minor adjustments during the laying and cutting in of the pavers. Place stakes at the edges of the markings and attach a string line to the stakes at the final height.
If you need something cozy for an intimate dinner under the stars, you'll find a number of table top patio heaters available. Typically if you are looking to warm a large area like a covered patio, you should look at the freestanding models. If you have a really large space to warm, you'll also find a number of energy efficient commercial grade patio heaters with propane, natural gas, and electric type fuel sources.
