My wife says I never plan ahead. So to spite her, I am posting this now but won't start the deck till next March.
Here's the pool. That's me smoothing sand. The pool is done and we have been swimming in it. Next big project is a deck all the way around. On the right side, width has not been established, but probably 4'. That is the width of the roof for the solar panels. On the left, the width will be about the width of the dirt area, around 3'. One thing I want to do is bench seats somewhere with lids to store the chemicals. I will also have some sort of rack for the brush, leaf rake, etc. Any other suggestions or features to add? The new deck will connect to the existing one at the back of the pic. I will have a proper self closing gate for the pool area.
