    New to the Group & Building A Pool in Las Vegas

    Just wanted to say Hello! I have been watching the boards for a while and want to thank everyone for contributing info, opinions and reviews. I look forward to the info I will be getting once I get started. I am currently in Design Phase (I am doing the design and plans myself and then will have an engineer do the calcs and stamp them).

    So, I guess at this point, I wanted to say Hello and open up to any suggestions from people who have done Owner Builder Pools before.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Mark - I am out in old Henderson! Love it out here.
    Just finished the last of my design problems, so hopefully by Monday I will have it all on paper and can talk to our engineer. Getting excited!

    Awesome!! I will definitely look to you for some info. We don't have anyone for engineering yet, so a reference would be great. I almost have my design completed. I will upload what I have done so far. We are still missing little things (returns and a few notes) but its pretty close to done.

    Nope problem jmpoling. You have my number now, feel free to use it if you like.

    Here is a couple of suggestions if you haven't thought or done them yet. Go online to your local building dept. website and check for "Pool and Spa Plan Submittal Checklist" also you might want to design your plan on 11"x17" paper at 1/8" scale too. It seems to be the most popular scale the contractors use.

    Re: New to the Group & Building A Pool in Las Vegas

    Hi jmpoling, will this be your first owner built pool? Have a planned start date?

    We found even after all the research we had done and we had done lots, at least we feel we did. We are still finding eye opening things we didn't know. Wish we would have joined this forum long ago, along with having the experience of being involved or done a pool build before we started ours.

    Re: New to the Group & Building A Pool in Las Vegas

    Yes, this will be our first. I am sure there is gonna be a lot of surprises and things I didn't think about, which is why I am here. We are looking to start breaking ground mid March if I can get everything lined up.

    Any suggestions or things to look out for are great!
