    28 ft Doughboy install w/stamped patio FINALLY complete-LOTS OF PICS :)

    We bought this pool used last summer, installed it late in the season and just finished with the patio and decking this summer. We still have to finish grading, seeding, installing lights on each end of the retaining wall and one small deck end piece my husband still has to finish building and then all the wood to be stained. A work in progress for sure. Have LOVED the TFP way and so has my wallet!

    Growing up with the 'ugly' ABG pool I had a prejudice that inground pools were so much nicer. Then as I get older, joined the site and see all pools like your's that prejudice died pretty quickly. Gorgeous, well done!

    Greatly appreciate that comment! I had a friend over Saturday with her boys to swim, I think they were dreading having to swim in an above ground considering they spend most of their days in their neighbors beautiful inground. Once they saw ours they were happy to swim

    Love those lights! I know the work in progress statement. Mine is not done yet but a work in progress. I love our pool though. I get a lot of compliments from the neighbors.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    It's really beautiful! Its nice that you can take advantage of the sloped ground to give one side an inground feel.

    Nice pool. It looks like you dug out the high side and filled in the low side. Have you had any settling issues?

    Ken: No issues so far, this is summer #2 but my husband was pretty careful with drainage pipes, rock and retaining walls.
