Electricians are done. Tile and coping this week with some stone work and the sheer descents hopefully. And a conundrum on how to upgrade my already installed Easytouch to intellitouch.
I've been lurking for quite a long time and I'm about to pull the trigger on a pool build. My lakehouse is not really all that fun when the lake is so low I can't use the boat or jump off the dock safely. So It's time to add a pool. I wanted first to submit the details as I have them to the collective wisdom/criticism of TFP.
