Just got our 2nd quote for a deck around ~1/4 of the pool. The given dimensions are 20x14, although we need to discuss exactly what that means as it wouldn't be a rectangle. Anyway quote is $14,800, right about the same price as previous quote. This is for PT framing and composite decking/railings. When asked about switching to PT decking it would only save less that 2K. I can't see how we can justify that price for somethign we'd only use 3-4 months a year. (we live in Northeast).
Does anyone have any other ideas on what to do around an AGP? I don't want just the current ladder as the kids are already standing on it to jump in. ANyone have a small deck just for getting in/out of pool that works well? I really wanted it to be a place we could all hang out, but that price is crazy.
We DIY lots of things, but I think a deck around pool is a bit out of reach for our skills.
