    Still cold in OH

    But our deck just got finished. Next on the list is some lounge chairs, sunshine, and relaxation. I keep telling myself the time will come.

    That deck looks great, did you build it or have someone do it? Is floating or did you go below the frost line?

    I had someone else do it. It would've taken me a lot of time, frustration, and beers.
    It's not floating. Holes are 36" deep with concrete footers.

    Looks very nice!
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    I'm too cheap, I would have done it myself and it would look nothing like that! Very nice!

    I'm going to ask a question that I already know the answer to. Are you glad that you got the decking (and feel that it was a worthwhile investment)?

    Yes. We're very happy with the decking. Got a good price on composite deck boards. Ended up being about $600 more to go with composite vs wood. I think that $600 is a pretty good investment against having to stain the deck every few years.

    What is the size of your pool and deck. It looks very nice. I use to live in Ohio and I remember waiting for the pool to be open.

    Pool is 28' and deck is 16x14. Waiting for a break in the weather to open it up. Was 80 here yesterday and supposed to be 40 tomorrow. Oh we'll. that's Ohio weather.
