    Took some pics last night. Hope to get them up today. Pool took from noon Thursday to around 9pm Friday night to fill just below skimmer basket. Time to cut the hole for the skimmer and return and hook everything up. Its been sitting since Friday night with no circulation. Hope everything stays clear till I can get the pump hooked up. I let my 5yr old get in and swim around and circulate everything saturday night. Off to Ollies to get some 12% today. TF100 is at the post office waiting on me to pick it up after work.

    I'm well on my way hopefully!

    The only way it will stay that way is if you test the pool and feed it daily.

    Oh that hill... I remember pics like that of the hill I played to get our pool! Are you doing a deck?

    Congratulations. Presumably that extension cord is only temporary? And is that a Yoder's shed in the background? We have one on order but looks like it won't arrive before the Fourth

    We are planning a deck. It SUCKS without one!!!!!

    Planning a massive deck actually. All the way around. Have to finish designing it and then bribe some help...lol

    And i'm not sure what kind of shed it is. I know its amish built. If you can, be sure to get the 8' walls...They normally charge $100 extra for 8' walls but if you ask they will give it to you free. That shed was a heck of lot easier than building on myself and only cost about $400-$500 more than if i would have done it myself. My time was worth that much to me. We love it. It holds ALOT of junk.
