Nice Build...Who is your pool contractor? I'm in Mid-Michigan and looking for a pool contractor for an in-ground pool.

Lucky Rugger,

Call John at "Evolution Pools". His number is: 248-496-8328. He is a friend of mine and does great work. You will be hard pressed to find a person that is more meticulous than he. He knows his stuff....

Frame work and more frame work. Also dug a few more trenches to put footings in for a retaining wall. Cart in front of the horse with that but I decided to put a poured wall in with stuck on stone rather than putting in the larger stones that are around the east side of the garage.

You can finally get a feel for the inside of the garage as well. 12' ceilings in the bay area (with 4x6 cut out for attic lift) and then the cathederal ceiling in the 18x18 area....

The pics showing the pool being sprayed why is there a section in the middle of the bottom that looks deep below the re bar did that get all filled with crete for structural strength ?

They left a hole in the center so when they molded the gunite after they sprayed, they had a place to put the extra gunite they had to scrape off. Probably easier than shoveling it out of the pool or removing it a different way...

Awesome man! I like the leaf catcher. You even have a "pond" out back of the shop. I would say I'm envious but envy is a sin, I admire your whole project. I for one can't wait to see it complete with the landscaping and pool filled.

Sorry guys for the late updates but I have been so busy with the kids, family, work, etc.. Nothing too special going on but man, the retaining walls are killing me! So far, we have put in 250 ton of beautiful Wisconsin and it is running my wallet dry. The gas lines, heat ducts, electrical, attic lift, cupola, and cedar ceiling are going in now so everything is moving along at a pace that is quick enough to realize summer is on it's way! In the next two weeks (or so), we will tile the pool, install all pool hardware, poor all exterior areas with stamped concrete, tear down old deck and put new one up with Cumaru decking, drink a few beers, drink some more beer, and then do the exterior bar area. Buuuuuuurp.

I broke this project into three different budgets: Garage, Pool and Lanscaping. So far so good with the first two but my landscaping budget has been exceeded by about 150% and I am not even close to being done...

Is that on rock work or the actual plants, just let mother nature grow weeds for a while, so you can get the garage finished.

Who is your building contractor? I'm looking for home construction (and shop) referrals and quotes.
