Stone patio or wood deck?
 
I was wondering which of these would be easier to build? A stone patio or a deck? My patio door is only 3 inches above the earth level and I was considering for few months to build a stone patio...but somebody suggested me that a deck is easier to be built... I am not sure if the distance between the earth level and my patio door is high enough as to allow me build a deck... Any advice? What should I take into consideration before deciding or starting to build? Thank in advance guys!

At that height I would suggest a stone patio. You would want to step up a deck to allow enough room beneath it for your framing and ventalation. If you don't mind the step up to the deck then its all personal preference.
