Step By Step Deck Building Above Ground Pools Decks


This process is the same for Portable Pools Or Above Ground Pools Decks

decks

The floor framing around the pool consists of 18 trapezoidal floor-joist frames–4-sided frames with two parallel sides and two sides that angle toward each other. The dimensions for building the frames are contained in the plans. Begin by using 2 x 6s to build 17 identical frames. The 18th frame will be built to fit after the other frames are assembled around the pool. To speed up the job of building the individual frames, use galvanized-metal corner brackets to attach the four perimeter boards. Then, use joist hangers to install the center support joist.

The floor-joist frames are supported by a series of 4 x 4 posts set in the concrete pier blocks. Begin by setting the first pair of blocks directly onto the ground beside the pool. You don’t have to remove the grass, but if the ground is uneven, use a shovel to level it out. Position the first pier block so its center is 12 in. from the pool wall. Place the second pier farther away from the pool, with its center 18 in. from the center of the first.

decks  Next, stand two 4 x 4 posts in the square sockets molded into the piers. Lay a 4-ft. level across the top cap of the pool–the coping–and mark a level line across the 4 x 4s. Next, remove the posts and measure down from each line a distance equal to the thickness of the pool coping, plus 1-1/2 in. for the 2 x 6 decking, 5-1/2 in. for the 2 x 6 floor frame and 1/2 in. for expansion. Make a mark at this position on each post, and cut them to length. Now you can put the posts back onto the piers, but make sure they’re in their original positions.Repeat this procedure for the next pair of piers and posts. Refer to the plan or use one of the assembled floor-joist frames to position the pier blocks. Once the second pair of posts is cut to size, set them into the piers and place a floor-joist frame on top. Drive 2-1/2-in. deck screws down at an angle through the frame and into the tops of the posts. Continue to work your way around the pool, setting pier blocks, posts and frames. After installing the 17 assembled frames, measure and cut the last one to fit the remaining space.

decksComplete the pool-deck frame by screwing 2 x 4 diagonal braces to the 4 x 4 posts. The bracing isn’t required if the deck is less than 30 in. high.

Now set the pier blocks and posts for the 10 x 18-ft. sun deck. Again, refer to the plans for the exact positioning. The 42 piers are arranged in 11 rows spaced 24 in. on center. Once the posts are cut to size and set in the piers, install the 2 x 6 floor joists. Fasten the joists by screwing down at an angle into the tops of the posts with 2-1/2-in. deck screws.

decksOne common technique used for decking around a circular pool requires each board to be tapered so they all radiate from the center of the pool. The method we used is a lot easier. Cut several 2 x 6s into 4-ft. lengths with one end of each cut at 80° instead of square. Slip the angled end of the first decking board under the pool’s coping, keeping it at least 1/2 in. away from the pool wall. Set the long edge of the deck board directly on the joint running between two adjoining floor-joist frames. Fasten the board to the joists with 2-1/2-in. deck screws. Lay the next board tight against the first one and screw it in place. (When the boards shrink, a 1/4-in. gap will appear between them.) decksContinue installing deck boards in this manner, with the angled end slipped under the coping, until you come to the next floor-joist frame. Lay a deck board in place and mark where it overlaps the joint between the two frames. Cut the board along the line and screw it in place. Trim the next two boards ithesame manner, then go back to installing full-length boards again. Once all the
deck boards are fastened down, use a circular saw to trim off their overhanging
ends so they’re flush with the perimeter joists.    Now move over to the sun deck and start fastening down the 2 x 6 deck boards. Again, butt the boards tightly together and let them run long. Then, snap a chalkline and trim the boards flush with the joists

Next, enclose the open space under the railing with 2 x 2 precut balusters (75 cents each)–these have one end beveled to 45°. Hold each baluster perfectly plumb, then screw it to the 2 x 6 railing and to the floor joist. Set the balusters 4 in. on center, with the beveled ends facing down

 Above Ground Pools Decks   The final construction step is to build the stairs that lead from the sun deck down to the ground. To simplify this chore, we used five precut stair stringers ($7 each). Set the bottom ends of the stringers on concrete patio blocks. This will prevent them from sinking into the dirt and wicking up moisture. Screw the upper ends of the stringers to the floor joist. Create the stair treads by screwing 2 x 12s to the stringers.
