Have there been any Gunite Owner Builds in Toronto or Ontario?

I've received 2 quotes for Gunite pool and both are over 85K Cdn + Tax (13%). This is for a 16x40 rectangular pool and spa, non-automated equip, coping, marbelite, and glass tile.

We can't make that number work in addition to landscaping.

Looking at Gunite option over FG to get us the pool we want that will last us way into the future.

So, have there been OB's in Toronto? Searched the forums but have not found anything.

Alternatively, how can I start to determine if there are adequate trades to contract?

I already have my permits (pool fence enclosure in Toronto) and sign off by Ravine and Forestry.

Design - can produce concept but do we build off detailed drawings?

Excavation - have this one covered

Rebar - assuming these crews are pool specific?

Gunite - have seen a few Kijiji Ads but wouldn't know how to qualify

Plumber - pool specific?

Electrician/Gas - have

Plaster/Tile - don't see these guys advertising
