    Platform built for above ground pool

    I had this built last week. Sorry I waited so long. Goodbye to shaky ladders!

    Welcome to tfp, Bjgenna

    The new deck looks great Did you do it yourself?

    No... I had a local carpenter do it. I had no luck with the pool companies. I wanted something small to get in and out easier. It took forever to find someone reasonable to built it.

    If I may ask...how big is it and how much did it cost?

    I am in New York where Sandy has driven all prices up. $800.00. 3ft wide by 5 1/2 fit long platform. 6 steps up. He was able to connect half of my existing ladder for pool exit and entry. I will stain it next year.

    Beautiful job. My kids could get a good hard jump off of that for sure! I like how he cut and attached the pool ladder for the inside. Nicely done.
