Secondly, living in such homes allows you to gather large groups to have a party. You are never short of space. You do not need to book or rent a restaurant or a dining hall to hold a function. You can have it right at your doorstep. You could also have a barbecue with all the lights switched off, except perhaps for a little lamp or camp fire.
With spring in the air, you're probably thinking about spending more time out on your porch, patio, or terrace in the months ahead.
Although I've seen it done, I don't think you want to be carrying trays of drinks down several steps. One step down to the patio, and another step or two from the patio to the backyard, is acceptable. Any more than that, and you should build a deck, or build a platform under the patio, because you will then have the ability to adjust the height of the deck or patio to the conditions.
Patios are also a hub for family-centered activities: a place for meals; for children to play; for lengthy conversations that lead to important decisions; and for friends to gather outside around the barbecue.
