I started this project in May and finished in August. This would have been much quicker if it wasn't for me doing a double Masters program and the fact I also travel for a living.
I did all the work...the dig, the pool the entire deck/ painting.. start to finish and I have never worked with wood in my life. Unfortunetly we have less than 1 month of swimming weather until we have to close it out, currently 78 degrees. Anyway enjoy.
