I visited a friend of a friend who has property on a ridge. There was a
really cool deck on the property. The deck was round and has a roof
over the whole thing. One half of the deck had a wall with several
windows. The other half was open. What made this deck really cool was
that it was mounted on a spindle and had wheels in tracks on the
perimeter. The whole deck could be turned so that the walled part
blocked the wind.
Picture a round deck about 20' in diameter. There is a roof over the
whole thing. In the center of the circle is a big spindle that the deck
is mounted to. On the perimeter of the deck are solid rubber wheels
about every 4'. The wheels roll in a track. The entire deck can be
rotated easily by hand. The idea and execution were perfect. I
neglected to ask who did the design and construction.
Has anyone seen or heard of plans for a deck like this?

Deck, no. Same principle, yes.
It's not hard, if you get your mind right.

If you put the wheels on the wall or foundation and put the track on
part that rotates above then you will have fewer problems with the
having to roll over dirt and debris that finds its way under the deck.
