I bought a house that had an above ground pool built into the back deck. The deck is a rectangle, with a quarter oval cut out of the corner so the pool could fit in there. I removed the pool last weekend, and now have a semicircular drop from my deck to the ground, maybe 4 feet high.
I would like to put a firepit in where my pool was. My current vision is to build deep "steps" that would basically be a bench seat following the curve of the deck around the fire pit. Kind of like a bleacher.
Are there any code requirements for seating like this? Is it possible? There is already a separate stairway off the deck (which is to code as far as I know).
In Southern New Hampshire, but curious if there's anything international building code related.
Example of what I'm talking about in above link.
