    New above ground with deck build in progress

    Hello all. I have been reading and learning from this forum for several months. Thank you all for the wealth of great information. You have made owning my pool a delight thus far. I am sure without this site my experience would not be near as rewarding. I had owned an Intex pool for many years and no matter how hard I tried I could not keep the water in order. Then I found this site and learned why.

    We had thought of moving up to a more permanent pool for several years. Then last summer our niece ran a mini bike into the side of our Intex and made our decision much easier. It was hilarious! The pool emptied in seconds, just like on TV. How I wish I had a video. So this spring we took the plunge and attached are the results thus far. All the work is being done by our family, which is code for me, lol. The kids have actually been a great help. It's slow going as I work long hours but I will update as I can. The entire experience has been very rewarding to our family, even more than I'd imagined. And again, thank you all!

    Very nice coping of the deck boards around your top rail!! The fit is nice & close -- the quality of a deck job is always in the details. This job certainly shows quality!

    Thanks for the positive comments guys, much appreciated! The pool was definetly the easy part. I'm sure this will be an all summer project, but that's ok, won't have to worry about being bored.

    kplaster, I just commented on another thread about the pink board, see the link. In a nutshell I have some concerns, time will tell.

    It was a very busy summer so progress has been a bit slower than I had hoped but I'm getting there. I just may finish uip before the snow falls. We will sure be looking foward to next spring so we can actually start enjoying the deck instead of working on it. Next years project is to buy patio furniture. I think that will be a little more relaxing project, can't wait.
