Joined TFP in November as we were preparing to build our first pool! The big dig started on December 9th 2014 and 8.5 weeks later I started filling the pool on February 6th 2015. My PB was/is outstanding! The only issue we had during the entire process was when the deck crew choose to bury the chicken bones from their lunch in the yard instead of throwing them away. My dogs found the bones in 10 seconds and my wife found them eating the bones. We were very angry at the time. Thankfully, the dogs were ok.
The details of the pool are in my signature. I have spent hours on the forum reading and have learned so much. Thank you all for your contributions, this place is incredible. It is time for me to give a little.
Our build started around March of 2014 when the Admiral (AKA the Wife) said "I want a pool"! After some discussion, we agreed that we would build the pool but only after we sold our beloved boat. It was not being used enough. My wife loved the boat more than I did and would often take it out by herself when I was working. Ultimately, it was her decision. For the record, it’s true what they say about boat ownership.
