Hello , I am new here and must say that I never imagined that I would be building a pool!
I have decided to go the owner builder route , and have been lurking for a month or so.
At the ripe ol age of 42 I have a 15 year old boy , 8 year old girl , 3-1/2 year old girl , and a 2 month old little girl.
My wife spent most of last summer running the girls around finding new places to swim . We live somewhat in the country and it is kind of a pain for her to get out.
Now with a newborn it is going to be that much harder. I had been kicking around the idea for some time but honestly this summer just kind of made up my mind.
I have enlisted the help of a gentlemen that has a lot of knowledge and quite a few years under his belt building pools.
AS of right now , we have the gunite shell in place. So I am really trying to nail down the right equipment to go with , as well as the correct lighting , and the right plaster/color ,
Flagstone coping , decking , so on and so forth .
Super glad that I found this site !
Dimensions of free form pool - 44 x 20 x 30 - 9' wide sun shelf 18 feet long , with twin led bubblers . wedding cake stairs , couple of other formed benches.
pool will have a diving board , so it is 8 feet deep .
open to any and all suggestions !
