    Our pool

    Hello everyone. We are just about done with our backyard. Here is a picture of our pool and deck from our patio in the evening with the Tiki Torches burning.



    Later, Calvin.

    Looks brilliant!

    Where can I get instructions on how to build a deck like that? Its just the right size for my garden and is much more practical than the slimsy ladder I have now.

    Re: Our pool

    Thanks for all of the compliments. The sidewalk is just 12 inch square red and gray pavers from Lowes. The deck is just a standard eight foot x 12 foot frame with a cantilever system to extend it two feet past the end of the pool on one side and one foot past the end of the pool on the other side. And yes, I am always waiting to see who gets voted off at Tribal! LoL! Later, Calvin.

    did you do the deck youself? It's pretty sweet regardless. Like the Tiki's mounted on it - it does give it a survivor feel to it. Bet it looks even cooler after the sun goes down.

    Re: Our pool

    Yes, we did the deck ourselves. We would like to expand the deck down the other side of the pool either this fall or next spring. We are thinking of just going out 42 inches from the side of the pool. I am even toying with the idea of making an outdoor bar (kind of Tiki like) down that side but don't know if that would look like too much for our pool or seem gaudy. Thanks again for all of the compliments. Later, Calvin.
