    Hi I am Matt from London - United Kingdom

    It's still relatively rare to have a pool in England but increasingly less so - sadly I am moving house so will lose my 10,000 gallon pool - a bit of a monster by domestic standards. It is 5ft at the shallow end, 8 ft. at the deep end and is lined with blue mosaic (including a couple of dolphins, a sea horse and a “name” (Ben - the builder’s younger brother). It harbours many great memories I am hoping to make the most of it this summer

    My love affair with North America started with getting a job with Morgan Stanley - an interesting mix of some very focused (but generally great fun) people) and the occasional psychopath (!) - Well the company is based in New York! I then travelled in the USA extensively for business and also had a few holidays in places like Florida, Seattle, Vail etc. and also in Canada (just love British Columbia esp. Whistler )

    Welcome, and I hope you manage to get a pool at your new place, for a bit of inspiration about what can be done even with small outdoor spaces in England (or anywhere for that matter) take a look at this thread Small DIY 12'x48 AGP...(UK) Sure it is not what you have now, but it does show what can be done.
