Been busy working on my 18 x 33 ABG set in the ground about 24". A buddy of mine has graciously helped with the dirt work and drilling the post holes. Couldn't do this project without friends! The main part of the deck is 28 x 20 with a 10 x 22 portion running down the side of the pool. Thought I bite off more than I could chew as I've never built a deck before - but with help of friends it has been doable.
The deck sits about 30" from the ground near the edge of the pool. I'm using 6x6 rough cedar for the posts with 4x4 supporting posts under the deck. The railing will be a rough cedar with smooth cedar on the top rail with black balusters.
The pool cover is doing its job, maybe too much - last night it was 94 degrees!
Hope to get more work done this evening, working in 100 degree weather is no fun!
