Digging A Pond In My Backyard In Magnolia Texas

I have been getting a lot of reader emails the last few months asking…”Austin, what have you been up to lately, I dont get as many emails and RSS feed updates as I used to get”

First off, I want to say thank you for your concern….it makes me feel loved, :) My family and I recently moved just a few more miles North of Houston to Magnolia TX into a larger home on 10 acres of land. (Reason for move…. I wanted a bigger tractor)

Since we have so much land, and I have two young daughters, I decided we should build a pond in our backyard….a BIG one, to swim in.

Soooooo, I have been busy the last two months working with contractors, and digging and cutting down trees myself to make room for the pond. here are some videos, so you dont think I have just been sitting around watching TV in my boxers all day long….although since I work from home….I can do that. :)


Adding Gunite to the beach entry…..I dont like gushy mud squishing up between my toes!


And the final few stages of the build out



If you are in the area, stop in for a swim!
