Just finishing my ICF pool
Just finishing my ICF pool.
Subcontracted it out, pulled the permits myself.
It's turning out very nice: lap pool, 42 feet long, 9 feet wide.
Uniform 4.5 foot depth.
Better than anything I could have gotten from the local pool builders, but a huge pain in the ass.
Not so much from the technique or materials, but from the pain of having people not show up at critical times.
The finish guy got a DWI, the ICF guy got called out of town on a job, etc.
It was a constant battle getting subs to show up.
I learned a lot, and it's the first ICF pool anyone has heard of in this area of Florida (panhandle).
Kind of fun that it can be totally drained without fear of it popping out of the ground (the bottom/foundation is 8 inches thick of poured concrete and rebar/welded wire) with anchors deep into the soil beneath that.
Next phase is tiling the deck. How hard could that be? It's not like someone won't just show up for work.....
