I posted earlier and received a lot of great advice. Thanks for that! At that time we had pretty much decided on one of the 4 builders that we had approached but that ended up falling apart. Long story, but essentially the sales guy asked us to go with somebody else because he had discounted the pool so much he was afraid he was going to lose money. I didn't want to mess around with a builder who might try to cut corners so they could make money on the job so we obliged and went with our second choice. It's costing me more but I'm much more comfortable now. The builder we chose has built pools for 4 of our friends/neighbors in the past few years, so we feel good about them. So far, it has been a great process. See the pics below for the progress so far. Gunite is scheduled for later today.
