Before Work Begins/The Thought Process

I absolutely love all of our outdoor areas here at our Vaughn Hill home. We have The Beckman Patio, which has definitely seen it's fair share of fun family gatherings and numerous parties. We also have the porch off the master bedroom, that we use when the weather is too hot to be on the patio. It's a wonderful place for us to sit and enjoy a drink while watching the dogs play.  However, there is one thing that I have always felt was missing. We needed water!  We've gone back and forth for years. Do we want a hot tub? A pool? Are both too much trouble? Would we really use either? 

A couple of weeks ago, I decided we need to go ahead and just do it. Finally take the plunge (get it, LOL) After all our grand-kids will need something to do when the come to grandma & grandpa's house right? Well it took a little convincing, but Randy finally got on board. 

Even though I have always envisioned a fairly big in-ground pool out in the middle of the yard, we decided to do a small above ground pool closer to the patio.  We chose an above ground so it's a little more temporary, since we are pretty sure we won't want to maintain it forever. We also had to go with a smaller size than I envisioned, since we now want it in this location. We decided this location will be better because it will feel more like part of the patio. Therefore, I think both are worthwhile compromises.
