Just wanted to get some input.. We are talking with a few deck guys and pricing things out but figured I would get some outside opinions.. We are on the fence about what type of deck to do around the pool.. We always figured we would do a full wrap around but are now starting to think that it would be nice to have a "direct" view into the pool versus having to look through a railing.. It would be especially nice during a party or gathering to be able to see and communicate with people inside the pool.. The pool will be an 18 x 33 semi inground.. At this point we are figuring that it will be anywhere from 27-36 inches above ground at most.. The three options we are considering are:
1. 3/4 wrap around with 8 or 10ft x 21ft lounge deck on one end and rest being 3ft. This would leave the front open with no railing..
2. Full wrap around with 8 or 10ft x 24ft lounge deck on one end with the rest being 3ft.. This would have a full railing all the way around..
3. Just an end deck being 8 or 10ft x 24ft.. No decking on any other sides..
Below are some quick pictures I drew up to give an idea on what we are talking about.. Not to scale or anything like that.. Appreciate any input.. Also, on a side note, I apologize in advance if this is not the correct space for this type of question but thought it would be part of the "build" section.. Thanks
