This should maybe go in introduce yourself, but we're building now too. I lurked on PF for a few years. We built a pool at our old home 5 years ago. We outgrew our house and moved last year. we went last summer without a pool but had to have one again this year. Grading has begun. We're putting it in an unused area of our back yard near a steep slope, so retaining walls had to be built. That's what they're doing here. PB says digging should begin monday morning now that the walls are finished. Were building another liner pool, 14x28, 3' to 5' depth ~11k gallons. It will have an automatic coverstar cover, DE filter, deck jets, SWG. We had special steps made to act like a shelf. It all sounds good- I hope it matches the picture in my head. I'll post pictures as it happens.
