Anyone can build a swimming pool in their yard, but it takes a special kind of person to build a swimming pond.
Never heard of a swimming pond before? Prepare yourself, because it’s a phenomenal idea that this unique family embraced in the coolest way. They constructed one in their own yard, and the results were more epic than you could ever imagine. Fortunately, you don’t have to imagine it! They captured photos of the entire process.
This is what the yard looked like before they started working.
A Redditor’s dad decided he wanted to build a swimming pond for his family with some help from his two kids.
He started with an excavator.
There was a lot of digging to be done!
This honestly looks kind of fun.
Everyone helped out.
After some long, long hours, the digging was finally complete.
Then it was time to add layers of felt and plastic to the bottom of the pond.
These barrels were used for circulating water through the filtration system.
Decorative stones were also added to the deepest part.
Can you imagine how hard this must’ve been?
After that, they finally finished adding rocks and a base layer of stone.
The end was in sight!
Dad also went ahead and installed some lights for night swimming!
They planned to enclose the area with a custom patio.
I mean, look at that view!
This is seriously stunning.
After seeing this, it’s hard to be satisfied with my painfully average backyard.
The coolest part about this project isn’t the finished product (although it is beautiful). The dad who led the way works in IT and his son is a business student, which means that they certainly weren’t experts in this field before they started!
This just proves that hard word and dedication make everything worthwhile. If you like this story, share it with others!
