    Re: New Pool In Central Florida

    We just got word they will be digging tomorrow, (Tuesday) or Wednesday.

    Thought I would post before pictures.

    We had some dead grass and it was between re-sodding or putting in a pool.
    We went the $30,000 route instead of the $200 re-sod. (never have been good with money)

    Re: New Pool In Central Florida

    They came out and started the dig.
    The skid loader dug out some sod and the guy came out to layout the pool.
    Before he started I had visions of him just using orange paint to lay it out and me coming back later and
    increasing the size of the pool with my own can of orange paint.

    Before the layout.


    A little bit more complicated than orange paint.



    They are coming out tomorrow to actually dig the pool.

    Re: New Pool In Central Florida

    Nice layout. Are you adding a railing to help get in and out of the pool? The only reason I'm asking is my father lives with us, he'll be 80 in a few weeks, and we're looking at adding one to assist him in getting in and out of the pool. It's easier to add now, then later.

    No, we hadn't really thought about it. I will inquire with the PB about that. Thanks.

    Wow - the walls look so straight - I didn't know there was dirt in Florida, mine was all packed sand that fell in with excavation.

    They are not all the same color but they all were painted by the developer so you can imagine that there is not that much difference. All of them pretty neutral.
