Here's some build pics of our intex pool we put up at the end of last season. We're very happy with the results and are getting a lot of good use out of the pool.
Leveling out the ground
We ended up using a very thick pond liner under the pool. It's under the blue tarp. It was very expensive, but it will keep grass or weeds from growing through the liner. We learned this the hard way very early on even though I was very careful to kill everything under the pool.
Initial posts for deck
Beginning the framing
Custom made stringers. I made an excel spreadsheet that makes measuring and cutting stringers extremely simple if anyone is interested.
Started decking surface
Ready for spindles
Meshing the decking planks

The stairs that are in the pool are great. I think they were only $200 or something and are perfect. So much nicer getting in and out of the pool than ladders.
I'll post some new pics. New features include better landscaping, wiring at the pumps, and stained the wood. Also replaced the intex rope that holds the legs in place with a nice 1" nylon strap in gray. Next is pcv plumbing to get rid of the hoses and have some valves that will make maintaining the SWG system much easier.
