East wall done. Turned the corner and heading up the south side.

Previous thread closed.

That's cool. Just wondering why you needed a wall though; keeping people out or in?

Btw, lovely view. Bet you get some good breeze there.

People out, dirt in.  Imagine the lawn goes straight out to the top of the wall.

Have you calculated how much fill dirt you will need to make the yard flat?

Not something I want to think about now.  But the bigger the pool, the less fill.

Looks like a compound! :)

Wife wants me to build a house before the pool.  There will probably be a good bit of fill from building the house.  Then the topsoil get's scraped off and then the pool with perhaps some other structures built (septic, cistern) and then then fill around and replace the topsoil.

Women are incredibly unreasonable, aren't they?

My logic is that after a hard day's work on the house it would be nice to have a pool to enjoy.

I thought about it but reckon the Suns UV rays would degrade them within 2 years at best..
Old CD`s and DVD`s make pretty cool shingles on a roof though!
