Hi all, I need some owner builder opinions here! I've been really racking my brain on whether to go the pool builder or owner builder route. I recently got a price out from the local PB, and I do not know whether it's worthwhile to go with the PB or to try it on my own. If I'm only going to save $5k or so, I think I'd rather just pay the PB. Share your thoughts?
Here's my pricing from the PB. Please let me know what you think of the features and pricing and whether I would be able to save significantly more going owner build:
33' long x 15' wide and 19' wide by the baja step,
92 perimeter/468 Surface area, 8'6" deep, baja step is 4'x9'
I actually want the pool a bit larger, maybe 35' and 16' wide, so that would add even more to the cost, and it doesn't have pebble tec (has infloor cleaning though). Design wise, I would ask for the steps to be done differently, so as not to take up as much room.
