Any experience with these type of "consultants"? I like the concept. I work a very flexible schedule and being a control freak the idea of a bit more control sounds intriguing to me. From what I understand - you pay a consultant fee around 4K and they work with you every step of the way to completion. The folks in my area that own this company also own a pool plastering company that has been in business for over 30 years and has great reviews - so to a degree that adds a bit of comfort. Please chime in if you have any knowledge or experience with this type of pool construction.
