    SEMI ABOVE GROUND BUILD

    WARNING!! If someone says "I have an above ground pool in storage your daughter would love" it may consume all of your spare time for a few months!!

    This project just evolved over the spring & summer and seems to be coming together nicely. I did all the work by myself without any assistance.

    So we agreed on a price for the 3 year old 32' round above ground pool already taken down and nicely stored.

    So next spring, your daughter will have a much larger pool to play in. You think she was happy about the small one, wait until she gets to play in the big one!

    Please keep us informed of the progress, with lots of pics! We seem to thrive on that.

    Re: SEMI ABOVE GROUND BUILD

    Here's where I'm at today, Headed for fall of the year with the top cap to install which will be 2x8 all the way around to make a nice sturdy bench. I'm very pleased with where I am at with this project and all of the back filling issues and design changes have been addressed. Many thanks to all the contributors here on this forum for all of the information they have shared. I learned alot. When the landscaping and all the plants and lighting are in place I will share more photos!

    WOW! Looks great!

    "You're the best daddy in the whole world" kinda makes it all worthwhile, doesn't it?
