    New Deck Coming Soon!

    Hi There,

    I've gained so much in knowledge and ideas by reviewing this site, I thought I should stop lurking. We purchased this house in 2007 with a boring backyard. Installed the pool in 2007. Now it's time to work on the rest. Hoping that DH likes the ABG pool more with a two level deck (calls it "the big bath tub".) I'll update with more pictures when the deck is done next week -- the ugly red deck came down last Friday.

    I don't mean to high-jack your thread but I am thinking of getting the same pool and the same size and was wondering how you like it. Did you install it yourself? I'm still on the fence whether to do a self install or not. Looks great, buy the way! Keep those pics coming.

    We really like are pool. Friends of ours have the same make and model but only 12' wide. They recommended '15 and it makes a ton of difference. We're also really happy with the quality of the pool, so it was worth the extra money.

    We purchased ours from a high end pool store and went with their installer. Watching them do it, I was happy we decided to get someone else to do it. We have quite a slope in the back and there was way more excavation then originally realized.

    Nice Deck! I just replaced our deck on the house as well and went from 100sq ft to over 400, however, can't join it to the pool since the pool is over 100 feet from the house. Used the old deck lumber to build an 11x13 solar panel platform.

    Re: New Deck Coming Soon!

    I like that....you have lots of room in your yard.
    Are those the solar post caps I see in the picture? We had been debating those. We'll have to do something about lighting on our deck.

    Re: New Deck Coming Soon!

    yes they are - had to get them out of the USA since there's nothing worth getting up here - these are quite nice - not super bright or anything more of an accent light, we can still enjoy the starry skies at night (something you don't get in the city).
    I put LED pucks into the steps so they light up automatically come nightfall.
    Yes, we do have lots of space in the yard, two small MX tracks well hidden in the tall grass separated by the creek (tracks soon to be joined via some bridges). Still need to rent a dozer for a weekend to dig a pond and build some big jumps on the MX track.
