24' round pool deck?


Any tips? I have built decks before but this seems will be different as far as layout and build. I know the pool is round but has a bunch of angles at the top frame that the decking will go under. Going to make about a 3-4ft. Walk all the way around and then a larger deck area that attaches to exhausting deck.
I feel the hardest part will be the layout of posts. I figured on running string lines from diagonals across pool to determine footings. I'm not using the precast blocks. Just looking for some ideas and opinions.

You can hold your post back away from the pool about 12" and cantilever the decking to make it much simpler.

24' round pool deck?


Yeah just trying to figure out layout. Don't have a square surface to come off of. Can come square off exhausting deck but don't know if would be easier to start from pool to assure proper layout?
Any issues with face nailing joists to beams rather than setting joists atop beams? Of course using joist hangers as well. Been while since I built my back deck and if memory is correct I believe that's how I built it.

Not sure if this one will help but check it out.

Timber Tek also has a deck design tool.


I like to through bolt all my ledgers and beams instead of face nailing.
I set them level and pop a nail in the cwnter of the board to hold it them drill my holes.
