well here she is! I did 99% of the work myself.(i’m not a pool builder). Thanks to everyone who responded to some of my questions along the way.

Curious- what do the two doors under the porch lead to?

Fabulous pool and features :) What an amazing pool. Did you get a chance to get in it before the cold weather??

I am building a “sky bridge” from the house deck over to a wood tower and setting a standard hottub up on top of the tower elevated about 16’ off the ground. should be a real cool view!
Dude, stop it. I've been strutting around all afternoon after I changed some lightbulbs and emptied the dishwasher... and you are over here building sky bridges, pools and towers.

I hired the shotcrete crew as well as the plaster crew since that task takes like 6+ guys, but everything else was me, my wife, and my 11, 13, and 15 year old, as well as some occasional help from my 75 year father-in-law when visiting from Ohio. the running joke on why I missed every deadline I projected was “this is a big job!” 😂

those are a changing room, a bathroom, and a storage room for all the pool stuff like ladder, ledge loungers, basketball backboard, volleyball poles, etc. The greatest part about it is that room was dead space, not part of the basement, so guests can use them and not have access into the house! big surprise when we opened up the holes in the wall was 4’ of dirt that had to be removed by hand!
