I know lenders are tight, and feel I've gotten from a couple pool builders is "get your own" financing. All the quotes for our yard (bare and large lot) have been very high.

Anyone have good experience with lenders with regard to financing a backyard "these days"?

Are you handy?

If you are, consider being your own GC. You can save a lot of money if you are up to the job.

I am so glad you brought this up. My husband and I were just discussed doing this. My husband is handy, but he has never worked in construction.

Have you done this? A friend of my was his own GC and said he saved about half the price from a quote he got from a pool builder. I spoke with a pool designer (a friend of a friend) who said she could give us the names of reliable subcontractors.

I like the idea, but don't feel I would be qualified and or do it well.
I am handy, but just for the odd thing around the house.
