I am drawing up plans for a new deck and I live in New Castle County Delaware in 19702. I am having trouble determining what they mean when the FAQ the county put out says:
Q: How large a deck can I build?
A: An uncovered deck that is elevated above ground level may project half the distance of the minimum required yard setback, but no more then fifteen (15) feet.
Can anyone decipher this? Does anyone from this county know more about how far my deck can extend beyond the back of my house. My plans so far range from 16 - 20 feet from the back of the house. I don't really want to cut a foot off each deck board to make it fifteen and waste all that.
