    New build in Georgia

    Well here goes nothing. Hubby and I have never had a pool before but decided, for health reasons, to put one in. We've been lurking on this site for a while now and have gotten some great info from y'all. We'll try to post photos as we go along. On-lawn layout happens this afternoon and the build begins Monday. Wish us luck!

    We're way south. Our nearest larger sized city is Valdosta.

    The build is coming along nicely.

    Attached are pics taken at the end of each workday. We had no work done over the 4 day Thanksgiving holiday and we had rain all day this past Monday so work didn't start back up until midday on Tuesday.

    That's how this builder operates. I believe his motto is "we dig Monday, you swim Sunday".

Not bad for 2 calendar weeks and only 6 build days!

    I think the biggest thing that impressed me was the dig, rebar and plumbing in 1 day. Most Impressive.

    You could be swimming on Sunday!

    We're going to make some repairs to the screened porch and patio before having the Kool Deck laid so this will be the last update until the repairs are completed.

    Yes, this has been a very impressive process to watch them start to finish so quickly!

    holy georgia peach thats awesome. Looks like something you'd find at Ted Turner's house. Love the pines in the background. Having worked at CNN during the summer you'll find some good swimmin' time in August when you can cut the humidity with a knife. Sweet build!
