Build Your Own Pool Before and After

Slipcovered Grey

***Build Your Own Pool Before and After***


Remember how I was going to take you on the pool building journey and wait to show after pictures? 

Well,  I couldn’t wait any longer. 

Why keep you in suspense?   

If you wanted to see how we did it ourselves, don’t worry.  I’ll still take you through the journey, and if you are building a pool or updating a backyard, hopefully, this will help.

Here was our backyard before…

Before Build Your Own Pool

and here is the after…

It’s truly hard to believe it is the same backyard.

This didn’t happen overnight, it took us about 6 months to complete.

Landscaping is the next project.  

Build Your Own Pool

Confederate (Star) Jasmine will fill the entire back wall in hopes to make the wall camouflaged and disappear in time.

The pergola will also be filled with flowers and climbing vines.

It’s also the perfect spot for outdoor movies and birthday parties.

(like the outdoor movie theater we previously created).

The fire pit… will be a place where we create many memories.

Build Your Own Pool

We made it super large to accommodate a roaring fire 

surrounded by plenty of friends and family.


Are you in the process of building a pool or updating a backyard?

Stay tuned.

I’ll tell you how I made decisions along the way,

what slowed us down, and if there is anything I would do differently.

Until next time…



Every. Single. Moment.
