OK, so after asking 1,000 or so questions here and lurking for longer than I would care to admit, we have started on our pool!!! Groundbreaking was on 7/23/13. I was going to start the post on 7/22/13, but after reading all of the builds here, I was too paranoid that I was going to jinx something! Silly, I know, but it still kept me from posting!!!
We have a mountain of dirt in the yard, and an excavator sitting on top of it like it is "king of the hill"! I will post before/during/after pics as I can. I think they are making good progress.
The pool will be a 16' x 32' rectangle 3 ft on shallow end/6 ft on deep end. No diving board or slide. Vinyl liner, cozy cove, LED light. We are really excited and anxious as everyone is when ground is broken!!!!
Once the IG pool is finished, we will have to find a new home for our 15' AGP and 16x24 deck!
Thanks for all of the advice so far, and I will try to keep posting promptly for the build!
