Excavation starts tomorrow! Really excited about getting a pool since it looks like we will be home for a while. I’ll post updates as they come.

That design looks clean and elegant. Many of the ones I've seen since I've been a member of the forum have looked impossible to keep clean and managed. Or cluttered considering the size of a residential pool. Yours looks like it had some real thought, and 'editing', of the design.

Thank you! My space didn’t allow for a whole lot, initially was thinking an L shape, but didn’t gain much for the price increase. Free form wasted too much space, so went with this To maximize within my easements.
Was hard to decide on built in spa vs hot tub. sat in the hot tub with lounger and was sold!

SWEET!!! As soon as they say they are done run out there with your plans and a tape measure. It is wide, long, deep, etc enough? Add about 8"for the steel, shell and plaster.

And they are done with excavation! It was only 3 days of the jackhammer but it was enough!

Had a ton of rain last night and woke up to this! Hope it doesn’t delay me a ton. All drainage in the yard and from the house went into the pool it looks like.

NOooooooooooooo! but the good thing about all of the rock is it will be easy to fix! Throw a pump in there and get it out.

Just one side left. Finish in the morning and plumbers should be there as well.

Sad and happy news. Here is hoping they show up toaday!

They did not put enough steel supports in there. You can use just about anything that will keep it from touching the ground. It looks like they used broken bricks. That is a very common, cheap fix. Think about adding about 5x more then they did.
