So looking at the deck on the back of my house which is now probably 25-30 years old, I estimate I will need to tear down and replace it is 3-5 years. I currently have a 24' AGP that we put in 2 seasons ago. Kind of an experiment to see how we liked being pool owners. As we relaxed in the pool yesterday I decided that the deck replacement should be converted to a nice large patio with an inground pool.
Before I start designing this beast of a project, what is the best construction method for North Eastern Ohio?
The idea I have is for max depth of 5.5 to 6' depth and not too large 12x20 ish. I want to have a good design put together before I talk to a PB.
