If Im not mistaken one that shape will require one to be made.
Don't give a bid until you know costs...
I'm so glad things freeze here and the only pools are enclosed!!!

re

I've done ones like that in the past where they wanted the 2x6 and fencing type of cover. I built it suspended high enough to set it flat on the raised ledge and used 4x4's as legs on the other side. Then I simply did it as normal but also ran fencing across the raised side so you couldnt walk under the cover. I ended up with a cover that was about 4' above the pool more like a cage then a cover.

What service company paid you enough to do that? Crap I can't make any money building them flat per HUD guidlines.

I agree. It cost me $750 in supplies minimum in AZ for an average pool. At $3 a sf maybe you can make a little profit.

It really doesn't cost anymore to suspend it, maybe another $15 for a few 4x4's it just takes another 20 minutes. I don't really mind doing some of the weird ones because building pool covers is boring most of the time.

build it just like a box with legs on the cirves end. Scribe some 3/4 or 1" ply to the curves and where it goes around the handrails cup each side and lock it into place using ply wood all the way around them. Screw the 3/4 ply to the joists with 2 or 3" screws and that should hold it. drain it to their specified depth.
