Holy moly, that is so incredible, Mark! I am really grateful for you putting this post together. I may not ever have the money or the time to do something like this, but I can for sure dream about it.

Thanks for this!

Yes, when you add everything up it gets a bit scary! But to contract all this out was adding up to over $200,000!

Everything costs so much these days it seems. We did a fence repair for our horses last weekend...not even a permanent repair, and not even a full replacement for that short stretch of fence...and I was a little appalled at how much it cost!

Now I get to watch them eat it, again. LOL...

I'm budgeting for our tortoise garden...as my ideas get more elaborate, I keep upping my budget. However! My little project won't be anything on the scale of yours :<3:. I'm a one-tortoise woman! :D

Well, Mark I think it's time to invest in a 3rd location! Your practically a franchise now! So, I have this place in northwest Ohio that would be perfect for your next project:) with your money of course we can make northwest Ohio great again without Trump:) In all honesty, either go big or go broke trying:) $200,000 of awesomeness!

This is the 5th house I've had since 1984 that I put in a pond. Each one kept getting bigger. Every time I do one, I think of things I could have done and new features. This one is an accumulation of ideas!

I have been talking a lot recently that in five years I want to be settled into my "forever" home.

Did you make a second thread for the actual pond pouring? I'd love to see how the concrete pour goes with installing the seamless bottom and acrylic windows.
