Poolinar's New Pool Build
Well after a few months of planning we finally broke ground on our new pool. I like many others have benefitted greatly from all of the great advice on GW. We still have a few final decisions to make on colors, stones, and even have some flexibility built into the contract on equipment choices so feel free to offer suggestions if you have any.
This is going to be a bit of a challenging project on a hillside with a lot of trees. The backhoe is scheduled tomorrow, so we should see a lot of dirt starting to be moved tomorrow. The weather is supposed to hold for us all week, which is good because it's been a very wet Fall and delayed our start up to this point.

Here is the design that was done by GW member Chris (sceadu). There may be some slight variations from these images, for example the fireplace will end up looking a little different than the stock design image and we're going to move the swimout from the front edge to the back edge. The colors and finishes will vary of course as well, but overall we are going with this design and we are very excited about it!
And finally, the leaves and several trees are now gone and the digging begins...
