Thread: Central Michigan AGP and Deck Install

    Central Michigan AGP and Deck Install

    Hello everyone...

    SeanB, thanks for the new forum....I've learned a great deal from the other sites, but am glad to be able to join & post here.

    We're currently having a 24' 52" AGP installed with a 16'x24' deck and a 4' walk-around.

    We're excited about it, but the weather hasn't been cooperating very well here in Michigan...

    Nice work! Are you going to put a cover on the pool when you trim off all those deck boards, unless you plan to do a lot of vacumning of sawdust out of the pool.

  10. Back To Top    #10
    yes, cover before cutting...

    Holemania,
    Quick question, I built a deck like yours a couple years ago, Why did you take the deck over the coping instead of under it? Will be a pain when you go to cover it at the end of the swim season wont it?

    we had another 24' abg with a partial deck in nashville a few years ago. i built that deck under the coping.

    we just liked the look of the deck right up to the water's edge (there will also be a 1x4 or 1x6 facing board from the deck surface down to the coping also).

    yes, it will probably be more of a pain to cover it...i'm still mulling over exactly how i'll do it.

    i could devise a way to attach the cover to the deck or i could crawl under the deck to run the cable through the cover and still get under the coping...not sure yet...

    rainy, slushy day....but, more work did get done.

    we're looking forward to 40's & 50's and partly sunny days for the upcoming week!

    Hi Dave,

    yes,

    we are using the dek-bloks.

    i have not used them before...on our previous deck, we dug holes and poured footings.

    seems like these are going to work well...i've already been walking, jumping around on it & it seems very sturdy....no shaking or swaying.

    obviously, we'll have some frost heave here in michigan, but on these pier blocks, the deck will be completely "floating"....it won't be attached to the house...just right up next to the house.

    btw, that's another reason we didn't construct the deck boards under the coping...

    I love it. You can roll right out of the sunroom into the pool. You are going to have a great summer! Glad to see at least there is no snow on the ground in the latest pictures.

    Where did you get the plans for the deck? I want to do one this summer, and I planned on using the deck blocks too. I am going to go under the coping though, although once you get a 2x6 coping on under it it will look sharp. Keep the pics coming.

    steve,

    there are some free dek-blok plans/designs here:

    the crew i chose actually took my rough drawings and printed the design/drawings where they purchased the wood & supplies:
