    This is going to be interesting to watch!

    I see where they dug the deep end. Will there be any more digging? What will go on the bottom?

    I love the shallow end. It looks like a great place for water playing!

    Thanks for taking us along for the ride!

    I have a friend in Nesconset that just built a pool. She easily put 200K into her yard.
