I'm building a 4' deck around my AGP. I have the framing done except for around the skimmer and cover. I'm thinking of leaving that open with the decking coming close to it for easy access. The decking is 5/4 ipe that is going just under the top rail. I don't have enough height to cover it with a hatch.
Anyone do something similar? I'm trying to figure out the best way to frame this out.
I'm hoping to get the 10'x18' deck off the long side framed this week and then start the decking late this week and over the weekend.
I hope this makes sense. If not I'll take a picture tomorrow when it's light out and post it.
