    Looks great Martin, and a fellow Suffolk boy too. What area are you in? I'm right on the Suffolk/Essex border.

    Thanks for all the great comments guys. It was bloody hard work on your own specially at my age. samp09 I live in a Little village near Diss but I own a pub in East Bergholt, which is on the Suffolk Essex border, do you know it?

    Lovely looking pond, that's a lot of work in just 4 months, I've been working on mine for 6 months now and nowhere near completion so you've certainly put in the graft, bet you're absolutely thrilled every time you view it

    Hi ABN67, glad you like the pond, the fourth pond I’ve built and the last, don’t think I’ve got another one in me. How far off completion is your pond.

    Hi Martin59,
    I've finished the blockwork for the pond and the framework for the filterhouse and pond roof, the roof covering should be completed this weekend weather permitting, it's been a labour of love fitted in between work and the poor weather we've had this summer but I've enjoyed every bit of it so far, there's a build thread in the pond construction section called first koi pond, I've added a link to it below

    Hi ABN67. Just read through your pond build thread. Looking good, a lot of work there especially juggling around work and the whether this year. I’m semi retired now, so was able to work on my pond every day throughout last summer, and the weather was perfect. Good luck with getting the roof on this weekend, hope the weather is kind to you. I’ll keep an eye on your progress
