    Thank-you for your thoughtful comments

    I just wonder how long will it be before I stop dreaming about els, couplings, load and line, measuring everything and runnng back and forth from Home Depot and Lowes for one more item that I needed.

    Oh yea, I am always an Auburn University girl . . . but from Eufaula!!

    Yes, this weekend we are putting up the ceiling to dry it in and then comes the walls and windows. The idea is to use it everyday, year-round. The hardest part was getting an end-to-end 6 ft deep pool it under the deck and that is why it had to be this specific fiberglass model. As we enclose the area to make it a bonus room and do all the landscaping, I'l update this thread with newer photos. Thanks for your help and comments. I could not have done as well without you great people here and on the other pool forums.

    Oh, for others of you DIYers - - some lessons learned:

    * Where you locate the equipment pad is more important than you might think. Study carefully if you can place the concrete pad first and as close to the pool as possible. Also, have it at least at the same level as your pool's water-level or around 10"-12" above the water level is even better.
    * Other info and potential help, look here: http://www.g3-designs.com/JHF/Pool_S..._poolstuff.htm
    I wish you well.
