Backyard dimensions

last month

This may sound like splitting hairs but.......

We have a 400 sq. metre block and have designed a house footprint which leaves a backyard with dimensions 15m wide x 8.4m deep. If we shave 60cm off the depth of the house and add the 60cm to the depth of the backyard, would the extra 60cm be noticeable in a backyard that size which is enclosed on all sides by a fence and landscaping? Or would we miss the 60cm off the depth of the house more? The 60cm would be taken from the depth of the front deck, not the internal rooms of the house. The front deck is currently designed to be 3.4 deep and has uninterrupted river views.
