Help with a deck project
 
2 Attachment(s)

I am attempting to build a deck with stairs that run from my concrete porch to my pool. The pool is approximately 125 inches from my porch, the porch sits 12 inches above ground, and the porch is at an angle from the house and pool.
I need to know how to make put all this together.
Attached is a drawing of how everything is set up, and then one with how I want everything after the deck. The deck is pretty much just a set of stairs and a landing with a pool ladder attached to make it safer and easier for my pregnant wife to get in and out of the pool instead of using the flimsy ladder that came with the pool.
Any tips or anything you can give me would be most appreciated.

Specs on the deck:
I am thinking 4' x 4' and over hang the pool to allow the ladder to hang in away from the side. The stair stringers would be spaced about 2 foot apart. The height of the pool is 4 foot, and the bottom of the deck would be a minimum of 4'6" in order to cross over above the top of the pool.

I want to make the stairs and deck at right angles to the angle of the porch.
