    okay for those who remember, early summer I started building a enclosure around the pool pump so it wasn't so noisy out by the pool. Today the weather cleared up, so I got some before and after pics:

    oh woops I forgot to say, that railing has probably been there since 1974 (when the house was built) because all the railings are rotten. So depends how much money we have, I might make a new railing, more sturdy than that one, and paint it either green (to match the window trim) or naivago white (to match the enclosure/stairs.)

    the pool paarty is....
    not soon, the water is freezing, and the pool is full of algae. We're in the middle of shutting it down for winter before the snow comes.

    refer to my 2nd post about the railing.

    No offense, but that white is disgusting, pick a dark green or panel it up!

    Looks like some decent work though!

    I have to agree with RJ...it looked alot better before /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif But maybe once you get the railing up or paint it it will look better /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Good work though /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Nope, if we emptied it the walls would cave in.

    haha It's alot of white, but I like it. I don't know if I should paint the railing the same, or do it the green like around the windows.

    Between you me and the door post, I would maybe side it in wood to look like the porch. Don't get me wrong, I do think it looks better than all the pipes and such hangin out for God and all the world to see, but I think it should blend in better with the house. Course I'm an artsy fartsy kinda yutz so take my opinion with a grain of salt. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
