too old and heavy for the intex ladder. ordered steps for inside and want to make a small platform/decklike structure to mount them to. saw this little plastic thing - http://www.intheswim.com/shopping/moreI ... nfoID=1289
but it comes with two steps already and I can't drop that kind of money right now.
we are rural and no kids so side rails and other zoning questions are not an issue. just need a big strong "table" and steps. the freaking home depots in my area don't even seem to carry precut stringers for steps, I am going insane with this beautiful pool water torturing me and I can't get in!
we are not very handy with wood around here though I can handle a drill and circular saw. is there some website with simple plans/part lists for what I need?
my other thought was just sinking two tall poles near the edge of the pool nailing up a 2 x 6 cross piece and then setting up some kind ramp...
