So it has been a very long process and three and a half months BUT for the most part, the pool is done. On July 1st we ordered our fiberglass pool.
It started with a big hole in the back yard.
This is the finished product!!! The diving board, ladder and railing at the steps are off for the winter.
We are elated that it is this far. We have had to stick pretty close to home due to the big open hole/water in the yard due to liability issues. Now John can start on the fence to enclose the rest of the yard. The automatic pool cover is an added safety feature and was installed on Friday. No one can open it without the code and animals or people can walk on it without it sinking.
This coming week they are coming back to winterize the pool and put it away for winter! Sigh...I ahve been disappointed we only got to swim in it 4 times but in the spring it will be ready all season long and that is worth looking forward to!
Next BIG PROJECT is landscaping the yard! That will be an early spring project, along with finishing the rest of the equipment for the pool.
