    New Reno - Old Dog Needing to Learn New Tricks

    Been 5 years since it was last used. Wife and I decided this was the year to get it running again. She's retired. I'm working to pay for her retirement. Just joined TFP after reading a lot of the threads. Thought I'd say Hi and include before and after renovation pics of a pool from 1972. All happened in 12 days start to finish just 2 weeks ago. Closed yesterday but did get a chance to jump in before. Temp was 62. We're talking major shrinkage.

    Thanks. Nice to be here. Looking forward to sharpening the skills. We like the shape it's very retro. Didn't have the steps before the reno. The shed is crazy big inside. Actually has an attic. Tons of storage space.

    Thanks. Been reading for sure. Must have 50 pics of various reno stages but as a new member it seems I have limitations. Added the before above. Hope this works.
