Alex Dodman, hailing from Essex, UK, embarked on an ambitious project in the summer of 2020: constructing a swimming pool in his backyard.

With a new property in need of attention and skill, Alex and his partner, Sarah, took on the challenge.

To cut costs, Alex sourced the majority of the materials for the project through Facebook, saving thousands of dollars compared to hiring professional contractors.

Taking charge of every aspect, Alex handled material transportation, rented equipment like diggers, and excavated the site himself.

He also tackled tiling and plumbing tasks, significantly reducing the total renovation cost to approximately $10,000—a fraction of the standard expenses.

Through dedication and hard work, Alex achieved his goal of providing his family with their own private oasis.

The idea of building a swimming pool had long captivated Alex’s imagination. When he noticed a neglected area in his garden, he seized the opportunity to embark on this amateur building venture.
