Deck around above ground pool, new pool higher, what to do
Posted June 14 2008 - 05:03 PM
Long story short, I basically built the same deck on top of the existing one, except using 2 x 6 joists and deck material so I could overhang the pool rails.
Cut the railings and stairs off with a sawzall, then built a 2 x 6 deck down on the ground. Then reset the stairs.
Also, I simply shoulder cut the posts, at 7", and added the seven inches of height needed with 14" additions. Glued, screwed, and lag bolted. Then added new 2 x 6 rail caps...
Eventually, the whole rest of the slab gets the ground deck, and then nice lattice and such around the deck...
Gonna look great, eventually

Nice work. I would have done it differently, but then again, I've not no friggin idea what I'm doing, and so it's better to not have me involved and leave it to a pro.
Happy Fathers Day John.

Bob-O got the ground deck finished, and the stairs to the house. Wrapped the deck in lattice. Stained and painted everything
This front deck, he built himself right after he bought the house 22 years ago. Only the rail cap is new.
Amazing what a little paint and stain and work can do
