    Ideas on how to attach ladder to Deck

    Thanks! I searched other ways but came up with nothing good and not this one. I love working with PVC anyway, so I think this is going to be the route I end up going if i can get it apart and the pvc on it. Thanks.

    Semi-Inground construction and deck bridging house to pool - ideas?

    Thanks guys. I thought I had it set to alert me when a response was posted. I can call for the digging, but my understanding is they only mark utility lines. I will call just to be safe, but should have nothing in my backyard in that area other than potentially the well line (pvc) and 1...
