Need help in plans for in-ground pool built from treated lumber and concrete bottom. Any one tackled this project?

Took me awhile to find this in my reference library. Better Homes & Gardens - GARDEN, DECK & LANDSCAPE PLANNER magazine by Special Interest Publications, Magazine Group of Meredith Corp., 1716 Locust St., Des Moines, IA 50309-3023 Spring 1993 issue, pages 31-41. If you can you might see if your local library can get you a copy or photocopy of article. Otherwise, you should be able to get a copy from the above. This was built working with the Southern Pine Marketing Council and Better Homes & Gardens. It was built with 6x6 side walls, 3/4" treated exterior plywood, plus 1/8" foam pad (to protect liner and hold in pool heat) with 3"-4" compacted masonry sand on bottom. Theirs contained a 10' x 30' lap pool, spa, etc. The article has extensive directions, plans, schematics, etc. Also, could be ordered from BH&G/Garlinghouse, P.O. Box 1717, BHG/03, Middletown, CT 06457 - Plan #DK1501.
Also try the National Spa and Pool Institute, 2111 Eisenhower Ave., Alexandria, VA 22314 Have fun!
