Looks great, I like the full-length steps. Assume you don't access that door on the right from the exterior very often?

I put a covered porch on our little cabin a couple years ago, and it is the bomb. I can leave stuff out, and it won't get rained on, and it is great for shade.

Very nice, but that looks like a “BIG” not little camp upgrade. I believe you could land a small helicopter on that deck. That deck will be very useful, and even better after you get the cover added. Lots of work, but great project.
