    Just joined today. Been working on my pond for about a month now, but probably only 10 or 12 hours altogether.

    Here is where I am at:

    Former garden. I moved it to the back of the garage.

    Finally got some water in this thing last Friday. I need more rocks, hook up the filter, trim the liner, and finish the waterfall before I start getting a few koi.

    Here it is:

    First layer of padding: shingles

    2nd and third layers of padding: tar paper, then newspaper

    Putting in the liner. What a pain in the arse. Jake eventually showed up to give me a hand

    Filling the via the waterfall.
