    Congrats on moving forward!
    Design looks great and looks like you have a nice large lot too.

    Your yard shape is actually very similar to mine (but flipped) with a similar easement.

    Look forward to seeing your progress pictures!

    congrats rodog.

    I am still waiting for my HOA approval. 3rd week of waiting. I am in Cypress.I had put my quote here -

    Looks like we just have HOA approval and then MUD approval unlike Pearland.

    Re: New Pool - Pearland TX

    Thanks mrcarcrazy and spj318ti.

    Spj318ti - I had to to call my HOA several times to "sweet" talk them into pushing my apporval through. It took 2 weeks. City permits are usually approved in about 4-5 days.

    Also during the ending of my dig this Saturday the bobcat machine cut my AT&T line to my house knocking out my TV, INTERNET and PHONE. I had to call and a service tech came out the same day to restore service, he placed a temporary line which they will bury once pool is built. So far this has been the only setback.

    Along the route the bobcat used to access the backyard and front of the house the grass is all tore up and muddy. I was expecting this but to see it actually done I only saw dollar signs for the sod I will have to replace.

    I still cannot believe we are building a pool, it seems surreal.
