    Ladder question...

    I am just checking to see if anyone has experienced ladder issues such as them being too short. I am about a foot short inside and out. I have sand bags inside as a base now (pic shows boards) I will be adding a deck soon so not real worried about the outside. I do believe the ladder is extended all the way up..

    Is there a rubber base available for support or do I need to buy a taller ladder?

    Now there's a problem I've never seen before.
    Did you just buy that pool and ladder combo?
    I'd sure have it swapped out if you did!

    Re: Ladder question...

    The ladder came with the pool, which was given to me. I may end up buying a taller one..

    Re: Ladder question...

    I think I will have a similar problem. For now I have the ladder inside and steps out side for my son who is handicapped. I want a deck and then put the steps inside. Now on my outside I am using railroad ties to boost up the steps so I know I need 9" of height if I put the steps in the pool. I was thinking of using the all plastic decking boards and stainless steel screws to fabricate a bottom step. There are plastic decking made of wood fibers and plastic and I think just plastic decking boards.

    Re: Ladder question...

    So I bought a taller ladder and sold the other one. Also, bought the pad to protect the liner. Should be here by Wed. Deck build is underway!

    Re: Ladder question...

    Good job so far! That liner is a pretty one! THANKS for the pic! More please!

    It looks like you are going all the way around! NICE! Ours is 3/4 that way around. Maybe one day we will go all the way around but I don't think so. We have been here 13 yrs ..............LOL

    So how did you get someone to GIVE you a pool that big? Did they also give you the equipment?

    Re: Ladder question...

    Excellent start Bryan! I am looking forward to more updates. I enjoy working with wood nothing better than smelling cut lumber.

    I built a privacy fence 5' by 45' in 2012 and small deck 6' by 30' in 2013. Are you using all new material for your build? I am not cheap just like re-purposing good used material.

    Good story my fence pickets are Norwegian Spruce from Norway via Great Britain and majority of my framing material shipping pallets from a friend who had hauled it home never used it and was going burn it all.

    That is so neat that you were able to reuse the pallets and those fence parts having such a neat beginning!

    Do I really see 4 levels on your fence? LOVE IT!

    Re: Ladder question...

    Thanks Stump! All the materials are new. I too love wood working. Hey nothing wrong with repurping! I have about 20 pallets waiting to be disassembled so that they can be repurped. Your fence/deck combo is looking great. I'll post an updated pic or two tonight. Rain showers everyday do not help.

    I should probably start a new thread for the pool and deck build to show the progress...should I put it under "Show off your pool..."
