FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Design and Build Your
Austin TX, 12/14/07
Austin, Texas based My Pool Partner has reinvented the traditional
swimming pool construction process by putting the spotlight on the
homeowner, not on the conventional contractor.
Yes Virginia, you really can build your own swimming pool. By
assuming the position of contractor, homeowners can save a truckload
of money and maintain control of their project. The trick? Hiring
a consultant to do all of the legwork for them.
Instead of hiring an outside contractor, the homeowner assumes that
responsibility. However, instead of having to be an expert in pool
construction, the homeowner hires a consultant who takes care of all
the details for them.
That includes managing design, plans, permits, excavation, steel
reinforcement, concrete, plaster, tile, fencing, landscaping, and
every other project detail.
Each of the jobs described above is accomplished by a different
sub-contractor and this is where the value of the consultant really
shines. He takes care of all the management and scheduling, which
can be a bit tricky depending on weather and other interruptions
outside the control of the sub-contractors.
The consultant has a network of professional subs that he can count
on for quality and efficiency, relieving the homeowner from the
burden of finding reliable help.
My Pool Partner is the defacto project manager and follows the
design the homeowner decided on during the early stages of the
Rob Houglum, president of My Pool Partner, got the idea for the
business while contracting his own backyard pool, spa, and barbecue
kitchen. When he realized the potential savings for other
homeowners, the business was born.
“The homeowner, as contractor, doesn’t need to pound one nail, mix
one bag of concrete, or anything else”, says Mr. Houglum. “They
just go to work in the morning and come home in the afternoon to see
what progress we’ve made on their pool project. They love it!”
“With a consultant overseeing every aspect of the project, the
homeowner enjoys peace of mind and goes about his or her life
without worrying over the details.”
The role of My Pool Partner is to do all of the legwork. With
experience doing every conceivable kind of pool project, they help
the homeowner envision the family dream pool, lay out the project,
get the design finalized, obtain all the permits, hire the most
dependable and professional sub-contractors, and see the pool
through to completion.
Homeowners can save anywhere from 25 to 50 percent when they follow
this self-sufficient form of swimming pool project management,
according to Mr. Houglum.
