How much is an in-ground pool these days?
I got a quote for a pretty standard rectangular concrete pool with a tanning ledge and coolers. No water feature or other extras.

$62,500! 464 sq.ft. surface area. 96 linear feet perimeter. Bossier City.

Is that what they cost now? A buddy of mine got a slightly bigger free form pool with a water feature for $40,000 two years ago.

You’re paying twice what one should cost to make up for the ones that go bad.

Sounds about right. Stroked my contract last year around this time (before prices started rising even further)

Similar to yours. Gunite freeform with an additional 12x16 pavilion slab. Salt, heater, sundek...etc $58.

Sounds about right. I think you’re looking at about $60k minimum these days.

Southern Paradise Pool in Shreveport. I was very impressed with the rendering, and our meeting at the site went great. It’s just the sticker shock that got me. That said, I can’t justify over $60k for a pool. I’m getting another quote from a different company, but I’m sure it’ll be around that figure too.

I just finished my 18.5k gallon free form pool with ledge and water feature and 2 bubblers. Right around $50k.

i had a 42x16 greek style plus hot tub and 4 water features plus water fall put in summer of 2016 and it was 65k. Got quoted on new house a square 42'x16' plus square hot tub at 67,500 and put down a deposit to get installed next week.

not sure how yours compares to what i had before but if you look in this thread you can see what others said and pictures of my old pool for reference LINK

Also interested in this. We’ll be looking to do a pavilion and outdoor kitchen in the future.

re: How much is an in-ground pool these days?
Built a salt water pool about 8 months ago that is 15x34 with a 6x12 tanning ledge off to the side. 550 square feet of travertine pavers, heated, Polaris pump, two waterfalls coming off of a 12 ft (length) wall. Also, have a bubbler feature on tanning deck. All this for 57k.
I'm in Nola area.

adding a hot tub would be 10-15k more.

came with 4 led lights.

also had a/c compressor moved and added subsurface drainage as well.

I spoke with the builder last week and he said my pool would cost an additional 5-7k because of the rising cost of material.

I cut all the wood but the long 32' beam. I sat the post and anchored, contractor did the rest.

It was Blalock contractors in LC. But he isn't doing little stuff anymore.

As far as cost, I think between slab, wood, brick fireplace I was around 20k....now this was 2016 though so prolly good bit more.

It was 32x20 I think. I designed it to over hang existing roof and gutters by 2.5' and was 6" above at the very edge.

Post were 17" x 16" x 14'
Big beams were 12"x12" x 32'
Small beams were 12"x12" x 20'
Support beams were 8x8
Rafters were 2x8 true
Tongue and groove over rafters

All cypress and everything except T&G was rough cut, most I did myself with buddies sawmill and a bunch of trees we got when they were clearing land by us.

I loved it but wife didn't like how high it was, said it felt like a park

I believe it was 2 summers ago, I think they were one of the first pools that guy did if I'm not mistaken which maybe why they got it a lot cheaper.
