Been lurking on this forum for the past 3 weeks and just wanted to say hi.
The Wife and I planned on building a pool next year. We decided to start getting all the 'ducks in a row' this year and then got all excited and went ahead and pulled the trigger. All the crazy permits are now out of the way and when I got home from lunch today, I noticed my yard had a spray painted pool in it. I checked my voice mail and my PB said he was staking out the pool tomorrow and digging on Thursday!
I interviewed 6 different builders secondary to me being a tad anal- researched them, checked references and weeded out the ones that didn't fit what I was looking for. We are very happy with the PB we went with and I hope it stays that way now that we are about to really get started.
We have a small back yard and are using about all of it. The Wife designed the pool and is picking out most materials. I will update the progress as we go.
Sorry to ramble on...just excited!
