    Pool Shed / Storage Ideas

    Didn't think about the pipes in concrete. Thanks! Yes, I live on top of a big hill in Nebraska and it can get very windy...another reason for the shed. I plan to use the same siding and shingles as the house to make it match. I've been looking at some of those Pool Float racks, but...

    Lesson #1. IF you are building a home that needs a Septic, do NOT let your builder cheap out and put it right behind the house in case you want to do something in your Backyard ----Like a POOL! It cost be $3900 to move my septic tank 15 feet and shorten some laterals to get within code. UUUGH.
