I thought I would upload photos as the pool is installed to an online gallery, in the hopes that it might be of some use to anyone deciding whether to DIY or hire it out - or simply anyone who wanted a closer look at the day-by-day process. We're only on Day 2, but if the weather permits, the vast majority of the pool will be finished tomorrow. I'll continue to add photos to the gallery as we make progress - there's so much to do!
You can view the photos we have so far here:
I'll bump this thread as new photos are added.
