    We have 4 parrots, Ray is the largest of them and the baby of the bunch. Travel cages and carriers are brought out for them to join us poolside as they get pretty jealous seeing everyone outside having fun without them.

    I'll see if I can get some closer - what do you want to see? Its pretty simple actually, just a standard plan for a 10x16 with 4' of extension out around the curves which we just measured out and drew onto the standard rectangle shaped deck plans that you do on those machines at the building center like Menards or Lowes (so the center point on the end of the pool to the back of the deck is 10', the sides are 14') There are 10 dek blocks underneath with 4x4 posts into them and 2x4 crisscross bracing. The flooring is composite, the rails are all treated (we saved a lot that way) The rails will be painted or stained next year after they dry completely. The entire deck, including stainless steel screws, sales taxes and all cost just under $1,600.

    BTW, we lucked out on pool building because the only thing we had to rent was the plate compactor - all the tractors and trucks we used for hauling, dumping and grading belong to us as we farm and we own a gravel pit. Some Class 5 and Mason's sand had to be purchased because we don't have those kinds of pits, but a lot of the other fill underneath and stuff on top and the sides afterward came from our pits.
