    New DIY'er


    I am building a new home and doing an 18x36 IG DIY pool along with it. Im contracting out the excavation, liner install and pool bottom but am tacking the rest myself with family and friends.

    I am sure I will have lots of questions, and promise to post lots of pictures along the way as I progress!
