How to Turn a Hole Into a Swimming Pool

The story goes like this…My dog died. I deal with grief by working outside. I dug a hole with the intention of building a concrete koi pond. I’ve done a couple in other houses… no worries… In the next few months, my kid was born and the project came to a hard stop. The hole grew over… Until one of my buddies suggested I dig a giant hole and make a pool… heh… beer…

I didn’t grow up with a pool, but remembered how much I loved them as a kid. Figured it be the best present ever for my new son.

…and the hole got bigger!   Start Date: June 18, 2010

  1. I love this! I’m sorry for your loss too :(. I love that you loved your dog so much that this was what drove you to complete such an incredible project.

  2. Thank you for the kind comment. We’ve had a lot of enjoyment in our backyard since. Take care!

  3. Who was the man that built the pool, I would like to ask him some questions about his pool.
