A Pool Deck Build
After a couple of summers of navigating the ladder that came with the pool, and falling off more then once, we decided it was time to build a pool deck. The deck you see to the right was put in after we built our koi pond but doesn't allow access to the pool.
The first step was to build the frame and put the post in
Then we built the stairs. We like the idea of being able to enter the deck from either side.
And since I believe that all structure should be "landscaped" I did that with simple brick trim and rock.
My husband and I go fishing every year in Marathon, FL. Our favorite place to go out of is called Sea Dog Charters. We decided to give our deck a "boat dock" feel.
Some loungers, chairs and other "boat" items
I loved the paddle and the glass balls
Found this sign and had to have it and the fish net
I have a love of fairy gardens so I put a little sea side one on this side of the deck
And of course we had to have our "Sea Man"
Set up a relaxing sitting area
Now all that is left is to enjoy the deck :-)
