We are building our first pool. This has been a labor of love in design for me for over 2.5 years. I do interior design work and have the opportunity to do our own backyard oasis and am so happy we have started.
I started with just a sketch on paper before we even closed on our home.
This sketch we took to a few builders here to get quotes on. Then we knew how expensive my little sketch cost.
So take us to 2 years later to save up and finally be ready to start this process again, we again interviewed a bunch of builders and decided on one.
When we chose TPP ( shortened) everything was great up until after we signed the contract. And then it took them a month to file for permits, a month to pay for permits, and then they came out after they took our first deposit and told us they wouldn't warranty the spa equipment I purchased from Germany. (They gave me the ok prior to purchase with no issues) Anywho....I want to focus on the positive.
So now I am have teamed up with Aquatica, Mike McIntyre is a Design Architect RLA ASLA whose work includes the current under construction Vans skatepark in Boston, US Olympic Skate park, and has worked with Tony Hawk, and Rob Dyrdek; Discovery Channels Monster Garage, and currently now my monstrosity. As well as world renowned pool designer Skip Phillips who was also overseeing the project to ensure its perfection.
So now I have a great team behind me....now it off and running...or swimming.
