Al as Art Director

Al loves everything about the pool building, he has recently realized he is more the art director then getting to do the hands on stuff which is really his favorite of all the parts!

How Art Happens During a Swimming Pool Build

One of the things that happens when we’re building a project like this from an artistic perspective is it’s not so easy to manage using software, using any other means to track a project. I think the construction of the basic pool is very simple to track and to be able to keep customers aware of what’s going on. It’s when you get beyond that, once all the structure is there and you get to the art part.
