    Do I have enough room?

    Ok I need to make sure you pool experts agree with me or disagree before I start. So the area that I have is 24'x14' for a 20'x10' Intex Metal Frame pool. Next Saturday I have some guys coming out to take out grass and make the area level. So do I have them do the entire area or you think I can get a way with doing a 22'x12' area. That pretty much gives me a extra foot all the way around the pool. The reason why I don't want to do the balance of the available area is that the yard really starts to slope downwards in those last two feet of the area. Yeah it will pretty much fill up by backyard but more do I want we will have a pool and I have my smoker

    Let me know your thoughts.

    Not sure if the photo will work but if not maybe someone can help a rookie.

    Thanks

    I'd say personally it's looking a little tight. I'd take all the grass out

    Intex ultra 18'x46" above ground pool retired

    i knew it would be tight but I think it's doable but want to get some more input before I have the work started.

    That is a tight fit for that pool in that area. You will find it troublesome to work in an area that small.

    First, it will be hard to construct.....doable but difficult.....you have little wiggle room.

    Once you get it in there, you'll have precious little space to walk around the edges of the pool. Again, doable, but that is a tighter fit than I would suggest.

    PS - I am pretty sure Puyallup is in Washington state but please add that......your climate is important for future info.

    I think you should go with your plan, i think it will work and obviously you have thought it for a while. Go for it, yes it will be a little tight but what the heck.

    There will only one side of the pool that would be tight and thatcwould be by the fence you see in the picture.

    Thanks for your input.
