My pool is actually already (recently) built, with your help, and I documented some of it. I missed taking pics of some steps, but I thought I should share what I have. We are working on landscaping now, so those developments are yet to come. First, the before:
View of the backyard from our family room. Not a good picture at all, but hard for my iPhone to expose properly. You can see that our backyard is an empty void.
The unused backyard. So sad.
The other side of the backyard, with utility marking paint. I include this for "after" comparison later.
Finally, a view from the back porch, right outside the door. This is what you see when you step outside.
More pics to come. Pavers and gunite next!
