i'll be here. we went from this to this in a week.
it's 99% done. we still need the stone cap on the spillway. but yes, it's swimmable. we took our first swim last night. it was heaven. it seems odd to see it in the backyard, just a few feet from the house. it makes me feel like i'm on vacation... permanently. i've only ever had access to a swimming pool while on a vacation.
we still need some landscaping completed and once it is, i'll post pictures of the whole shebang.
