Hi everyone, this is such a great forum, I have been lurking around for the past few months, I love that the people on this forum are so friendly and helpfull.
I am super excited because our pool builder will most likely be starting our new pool build the first week of June, yeahhh!!! We are moving into a new home so I am praying that the closing all goes according to plan.
I have been working on the pool design myself and would love any feedback, along with any recommendations on the equipment our pool builder is using.
The pool I dreamed of having is far different from the one we are getting due to me facing reality and finding out how much everything costs. I originally wanted a free form pool, but because one of our musts was an automatic cover and deciding I liked how the auto covers looked on the rectangle pool better we ended up with a rectangle shaped pool. I also wanted an attached hot tub, but when you are trying to stay under $40,000 it just wasn't possible. One of the things I did get was a 6' x 16' baja shelf, I had to talk the husband into that one, he feels it will be a waste of space, but I'm not a big swimmer so this is where I plan to spend my time while the kids are swimming. I hope the novelty doesn't wear off like some people have posted about.
That is about it for now, and opinions, suggestions, or comments are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
