The average cost to build a swimming pool is between $25,000-50,000. Ouch! I think my bank account just fainted. I lived in the south where temperatures stayed at 100°F for weeks on end. Pools were a welcomed escape as well as a fun way to spend time with friends.

One man decided he was tired of his bare backyard. He wanted a pool but wasn’t about to shovel out big money for one. He decided he could dig his own little pond. It didn’t take a crazy amount of skills either. Just material and ingenuity. See how he did it and you’ll realize you can build your own pool too. This project is truly inspiring!

This dead and boring backyard is about to get a big makeover.
