    hi from the uk

    Hi all im from the not so sunny UK. Have recently finished (for now) my 12' agp with surrounding deck and a gazebo with hot tub and sauna. Not as extravagant as some on here but here in England it is awesome. Heres some pics

    Part way through the build



    I am currently planning a diy exersize jet that I plan to retrofit to the side of the pool and im sure I will have plenty more questions as I go. Thanks

    Thanks. Got a few bits to do too finish it off. Will have steps going down to the French doors, some lights and a banister around it all. Also going to try and build some sort of shutters for the windows so in the winter we can still enjoy the hot tub and sauna.

    Welcome to TFP rodg98133. That is a very nice build. Love the hot tub enclosure. How long of a swim season do you have?

    Not very long lol. Its warmish from about April to September but never really gets above 25degrees. I am thinking of some sort of cover to go over it that would allow me to swim year round. It has 2x 3kw heaters on it so that keeps the water warm.

    Love it.

    I'm in England too, but with no where near as big a garden or fancy set up
