I am just beginning my first owner build pool and it will be the first pool that I have ever owned so I am quite green. I am really hoping that someone can provide me with a good checklist and timeline that can help to guide me through this process. I am particularly confused as to whether or not I need a construction or architect plan or both?
So far I have my computer design and basic measurements pinned down
Do I next pay for a construction plan or does the engineer handle that?
I'm told a construction plan can be given to sub contractors for bids
I also have an excavator and grader lined up... What's next, what's the order? Plumbing, rebar, electrical, shotcrete, then decking? And at what point do I need inspections?
It's a lot of questions, any help is appreciated!
