Arrow Deck over window well??

I'm about to build a new freestanding deck that will be approx. 13" off the ground. As part of this project I'll be installing a sliding glass door in the wall of a bedroom that will open to this new deck.

My problem: The deck and door will be directly above a window well. Is this going to be a problem? As a potential fix, is it possible to install the deck board so that they are removable (like a snap-in feature)????

Please help.

Check with your Building Inspection Department for local code.
If this window well is a basement "emergency egress", they will not allow it.
Depends upon the situation.
Good luck!
