New Pool Build Underway
First of all, thanks to everyone for sharing your stories as we have learned much from this site and others over last several months. Our pool build is now underway and I thought I would share the progress so others can learn as well. There were lots of design choices and while some had clear benefits to us over others functionally, a lot of them came down to budget and/or personal preference. My best advice thus far is to not beat yourself up over the little decisions, take your time, and plan it all out considering any future backyard plans in your design.
And off we go.... if there is interest I will be eeping this up to date and give you all the good and bad with our experience as we go along to the end. Link here - http://www.flickr.co...57625166514266/
Choices we made:
18x40 inground vinyl liner pool (midwest region)
sport pool design which goes 3'4" shallow to 6' middle to 3'4" shallow.
Pool house/shed for storage
Concrete decking 5' on the long sides, 7' on pool house end and 13" feet on other end (for lounging)
Pre-install for future water feature
Umbrella drop ins for the concrete deck
Happy to answers questions on why we made these choices vs other options.
