    Re: above ground pool needs a deck

    I built this deck a few years ago for a friend. I think the pool was 21' round, but I don't remember, and unfortunately, he moved at the end of the summer right after we built it. New homeowners took down the pool and deck 2 years later.

    We sunk 4 footings per his town's code; used 4x4 posts and double 2x12 beams. We cantilevered the deck rafters 2 feet over the beams. Decking was Trex-type stuff. Code required the railing be 42" minimum and incorporate either a locking gate or removeable stairs. We opted for the gate. Building inspector was more than pleased with the design, and it was rock solid. I don't know if you can make out any details of the construction (I'm not the best photographer), and we sketched the plan up on our own.

    At the least, it may give you an idea.

    We had thought of the post block construction, but it wasn't allowed. I think you can do a search for the company that makes the blocks, or just search post block deck construction. I remember there was a plan on one website I had found.

    Sorry if tnis isn't much help.
