I've begun reading up on here the past week to try and educate myself. I'm many months out from my build. I have LOTS of reading to do. The first thing I want to figure out before I ever even have a PB out to design something is a ballpark figure I should expect to pay. I realize without the exact equipment list it is hard to nail down even a ballpark figure, but any help I could get from those of you who have been through this recently would be appreciated.
I'm in the Houston, Tx area. I am not looking for anything particularly high end. Here is what we want:
16'x34' rectangular pool with rounded corners
Prefer a sloped design starting at 3' going to 7-8'
Standard size round spa with gas heat(no heat for pool)
Sufficient LED lighting
About 500Sq Ft decking, prefer lower maintenance
Umbrella posts in multiple locations build into decking
I really have a lot to learn on the equipment side, but I'd be wining to pay a little more for convenience. I don't need fancy automation though. I'm not looking to have jets or a water feature or rock wall on the pool.
Could anybody tells me what price range I should expect to see from the pool builders with this information? Is there something I left off the list you consider a must have?
