Extending Outside Spigot

My house has an outdoor spigot located under a deck (deck was an addition).

Any ideas as to extending the spigot out to the edge of the deck so that I don't need to crawl underneath everytime I need to water the garden? I'm looking for something permanent rather than just attaching a hose and leaving the spigot on.

Too Low

I would think the simple solution would be to raise the existing hose bibb straight up to an elevation above the deck. Certainly it could extend out at its current elevation but insulation would be required.

Personally I would cut it out in the basement and run new copper to the edge of the deck and put a new spigot there. Hopefully you have a valve inside for winterization.

If you want to leave the existing spigot, you can get a female garden hose to 1/2" npt fitting and then sweat copper out to the edge of the deck and attach your spigot then.
