    How bout this one? This is the "Clubhouse" at the camp community where my cabin is in NY. Pretty sure the tree came first. There's a patch in the porch floor and ceiling on the opposite corner where there must have been another tree, but it was long gone even when I was a kid.

    Built around 1900 as a private residence, you should see the massive fireplace inside the great room...

    I've seen a couple of those in MI. Used to know a fellow who had a cottage by one of our many lakes and it had a tree inside. He told me it was a constant battle keeping things dry. If memory serves me it was around 30" diameter.

    We build our deck around a big norway maple back in 2003.....it died a year later, most likely due to the fact that I had to cut some roots for posts and for the new sewer line......

    It was a nice tree to have as long as the birds stayed out of it......was comfortable on a breezy summer day to be out there and take a nap on the chair under it.....

    Did you use pressure treated for the deck?

    Yes, and that is most likely what did it in...
