Deck around pool...

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks.  I use CA X1.

 

I am designing a deck plan that includes a round above ground pool (21' diameter).  Does anyone have a similar design or plan?  I'd like to know if I would have to manually draw the deck framing (piers, beams, footings) around the pool or can CA do this for me?  The pool will sit/rest on the ground so there's no weight bearing on the deck, however the deck will be flush with the pool giving an "in ground" appearance.

 

Any pics would also be helpful.

 

Thx always,

Roz

Just use CA , set the terrain, put the pool on top of it and do the deck around it use curved deck railing. You set defaults will automatically put posts, piers, beams. Being this round pool, you might have to make some adjustments to the beams and post. Just make it same way you build it in reality. Here is out of the box deck just to give you an idea.

Thanks for the reply Greg.  How did you "raise" the deck?  I notice the deck floor surface is flush with the top of the pool...which is exactly what I want.

 

Thanks again

I'm not sure if it matters but an above ground pool is not round.  It will be a "regular convex polygon" with about 18 sides.

You could call the pool supplier to find the number of sides.
