Saw your title. Yoda fan? Friday it is.

Lots of threads discussing OB/DIY budgets. A common theme seems to be spending the same and getting a better pool than the PB quoted. Yes, headaches, especially if something goes south. But, by and large, I hear good things from OB threads shared. Yes, you would pull the permits. Some choose to use a design firm like Pool Engineering, Inc., Structural Design of Swimming Pools and Residential Improvement Structures though I see they are not licensed in FL.
