Starting in March 2011, a normal family in Switzerland transformed their backyard into an unbelievable swimming pool. It’s totally a do-it-yourself project and almost all of the VonBubenberg family participated in this.
At first, the backyard was dirty grassland and the father wished to build a swimming pond by himself. The children decided to help their dad. They used the excavator to make a garage, and then they bought water conduits as well as setting up a filter system. They ordered materials like felt and plastic oils in Germany. The next big step is to fill the pond with heavy-ass rocks. The son said that: “we were 5 men and worked around 8 hours to build the walls of the pond etc.. We were tired to death by sunset.” After this, they even make a patio around the pond. In summer 2012, they finally finished this project and they could start to enjoy their selfmade swimming pool!
