I bought a house last year that came with an above ground pool. Found this place and have successfully turned my swamp into an oasis. I am a graduate of the pool school and I am a fan of BBB.
Now that I am past this stage, I gotta give the wife a place to put her chair. Its deck time.
The pool currently has grass, weeds, rocks and an attempt at a concrete paver patio. All of this mess has to go. The previous homeowner (husband) did not want the pool (according to his wife), and put no effort into the area around the pool, at all.
I have read through the forums and have seen several great projects, as well as some neat extras that help to increase enjoyment.
What I want from this thread is some feedback on 'must-haves' or 'wish-i-had-done-this' or the 'be sure to not do this' from builders or owners of AGP decks.
I am experienced with deck building, so no option is off the table (within budget).
Right now, I am thinking I will deck about 25% of the pool, approximately 16'x16'.
