I have already made a few post in this beautyful site, that I've stumbled upon from a swedish poolforum a few days ago. I must say that I'm totally blown away by the projects you post in here. It's already yield us inspiration to add what you call a tanning ledge in one part of our pool. That is someting we never would have thought of if it wasn't for your postings, so thank you all
One think I have noticed since I have spent some time in here is that the way you build your pools in warmer climates are quite different compared to the way we have to construct our. So that gave me the idea that I could start a log in here aswell even if the project itself is nothing fancy at all. But it might be interesting for some to see the difference in wich way we build and reinforce our pools.
Our family have decided to build a concrete pool which is not the most usual way to build a pool here. Since it's not very common with concrete as a material in pools it's very expensive to have them build. So that is the reason I have to do all the work myself. I don't mind it really, I have always liked to do thing with my hands and it's a good opportunity to learn new things.
I'm a father of two daughters so we are all very excited to get this dream become true to next summer. i'm pretty sure that it will be ready by then. You probably already figured that English is not my mothers tounge, so you have to bare with me 8) 8)
Here comes some pics from the first couple of weeks in the end of August. I was only allowed post three at the time so I come back tomorrow for some more.
BTW thanks Cobra46 for your input in Eggmans thread. I've read part of your log yesterday and what a pool you building.... very, very nice!!
