    Owner builder ?

    New to this sight and am not sure where to go to ask ? On building a pool. We hired a consultant to designer and have engineered. We are not happy with how this started as we over paid by a lot on these 2 parts of the pool. We were promised a lot more then we got so we are looking for advice. Is there a way to get a list of subcontractors in Las Vegas beisdeds the Internet? Does someone have a list on here?

    Owner builder ?

    Thank you. I think this website is going to save me a ton of stress of building this. There is a lot of useful info I have found so far. Would it be better if I posted a picture of my design and start from there? Or just ask ? First
