After 3 years of saying we're going to build a pool we finally dove in and will begin construction this weekend.
After researching on-line and having several estimates locally we have decided to build the pool ourselves. My husband and I have argued about shape size and color for 2 months.  We decided to combine our wants and we designed a custom pool. It will be the only one of its kind.
It will have a view to die for.

 Tips for First-Time Homebuyers
Be picky, but don't be unrealistic. There is no such thing as a perfect home. Thing is perfect but some may be close enough.

real estate: Happy Labor Day - 09/03/07 01:14 AM
The Central Labor Union celebrated the first Labor Day holiday Tuesday, Sept. 5, 1882, in New York City. 1894 Congress passed an act making the first Monday in September of each year a legal holiday in the District of Columbia and the territories.

We will all miss the summer and count down the days until Memorial … (4 comments)
