Here goes nothing,
Hey everyone, my name is Jason. We are just starting this project that we have wanted for many years but other priorities always won over. We will be sending our plan to the county for permitting tomorrow or Monday (was waiting for the special engineering for the Waterfall and Sunken Ramada). Hoping to break ground on this beast within a month if permits go smooth. Would love to be done by Feb/Mar, or at least 85% and wet.
My hopes are that I can document this build and keep everyone up to date as it goes if your interested; the ups and downs, and sideways' as they occur. I am no pool builder, but have stayed at a holiday inn express a few times , and am also project manager, technician and a quick study. I have learned a lot following others posts, forums and builds, as well as talking with other owner builders, and the trades people, and hope that with this knowledge and the things I learn along the way, mine turns out well. I value everyone's feedback on this project as this goes. I have been getting all my bids in from the different trades, interviewing them, comparing prices, references, and learning the if's and or butts to their quotes.
Below is my plan if I post it correctly, please take a look and provide your thoughts. Feel free to comment, I'm a big boy, and can handle criticism well if it is called for. It is a very large pool, on the lower level of my 1.5 Acre property, and this section of the property was to always be just for the pool and play area.
