About to build . . . AGAIN

Hey y'all! I haven't been here in quite a few years, I was a member years ago during my first pool build. My pool was fantastic and ended selling my house before it even went on the market :) We moved and I am ready to build again - but want to see what the latest and greatest in pools are doing.
This build will be different for us - we sit on top of a hill now, and I really don't know financially what that is going to do to my budget - but it is what it is. I will attach a picture of my last pool - we had waterfalls and it was spectacular. I am thinking maybe something rectangular this time - running parallel to the house. Hot tub, tanning ledge and wide steps to take up an entire side of the pool . . . but I need something on the other side for the sound of water - which is my favorite component of having a pool. Instead of the firepit, we are thinking a fire place on the porch. ALSO to complicate a little more, my dad just passed away and we anticipate my mom coming to live with us in a year or so - we would really like to plan the pool around a pool house being built too. I am going to try to get out and get some photos of my backyard so you guys can help me plan!

I sure hope some of the ol' timers are still around :)

Since you’ve last joined us, we’ve mostly converted to Baquacil for sanitization with supplementary UV systems, and now single speed pumps are all the rage to boot. They are all the next big things! And hairnets aren’t just for skimmer baskets anymore.

Welcome back!
