I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for providing such great information on this site! I have been lurking for months and finally have some progress to show. The main electric line to our house runs diagonally through our yard so we had to move this closer than the trees than I would have preferred. The positive is that we can connect it to our existing deck so the kids won't run through dirt to and from the pool!
Pool site before:
Digging the hole:
2-3 ft hole:
Walls up first time:
So, we got the bottom done and then took the top rails off to adjust them. In Oklahoma. On a windy day. IDIOTS!
Building the walls again. This time with more people!
Backfilled, 8 pickups of dirt, hand shoveled!:
What happens to hubby after backfilling:
Beginning splash deck framing:
Kids braving the 47 degree water:
Framing to connect with existing deck:

View from existing deck:
So, that's where we are for now. I will add more when we get closer to finished and my yard doesn't look like an obstacle course.
