Gil Klar decided that he wanted all bases covered in a hidden swimming pool. He wanted it to be safer than just putting up fencing around a pool, keep out all debris, and hide seamlessly with his lawn. He not only accomplished all of his goals, but he built it himself for around $10,000. According to him, this is one quarter of what a contractor would have charged. Now this is a Summer DIY for the record books!
This year's 4th Of July fireworks show in Nashville will be America's largest.
The big bang: Nashville to host America's largest July 4th fireworks display
Nashville is really blowing up.
And we're not just talking about all the construction cranes - the city's annual Fourth of July fireworks display will be the largest in the country, according to a news release from the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp.
"The event garners more and more international media attention each year and is now a massive, multi-day celebration where thousands travel to enjoy free music and the best fireworks in the country," Butch Spyridon, president and CEO of the NCVC, said in a news release. "July 4 th falls on a Saturday this year, giving us the chance to leverage our past success and create maximum return for the city. With the U.S. men's soccer match on Friday, two days of great performances, family activities and the largest fireworks show in the country, we estimate it to be a huge weekend for Nashville."
This year's fireworks - synchronized to live music from the Nashville Symphony - will be preceded by performances from Mikky Ekko and headliner Martina McBride.
Last year's event drew a record crowd of 280,000 people.
Pre-construction work should start in the fall on The Lodge at Fontanel, a Holiday Inn resort, which will bring 150 rooms and a conference facility/events center to the former estate of country music singer Barbara Mandrell.
Fontanel Attractions LLC is seeking the Metro Planning Commission's approval of its final site plan for the up to $30 million resort, which will sit among the hills near Fontanel Mansion in Whites Creek. Under the plan, the Mansion will be transformed into the lobby for the resort along with a bar/restaurant, banquet and meeting space and one large luxury suite.
"There's a lot of excitement being generated about this project in Nashville, and we feel confident that we'll be moving forward," said CEO Bob Ekman of MORE American Hospitality, the management company that oversees development and operations of the Fontanel property.
In fall 2013, music industry veterans Dale Morris and Marc Oswald, owners of the 137-acre Fontanel property, announced plans for what then was expected to be a 140-room resort with eight lodges wrapped around the Fontanel Mansion. Construction didn't start last year as planned, but now Ekman said the plan is to start building in the first quarter of 2016, with the resort to open a year later.
The 150 rooms at the InterContinental Hotel Group-branded resort would be spread across six buildings. Pet-friendly and children-friendly rooms are among the variety of room types planned. The conference center is expected to have a capacity for up to 350 people.
In addition to the Fontanel Mansion used for tours that highlight Barbara Mandrell's country music career, the 137-acre property includes a restaurant and bistro, The Inn at Fontanel, and Prichard's Distillery.
EDGE, a planning, landscape architecture and development consulting firm, is listed as the applicant in Fontanel Attractions' filing that seeks approval of its final site plan.

"Places that were more traditionally affordable are growing more quickly," said Skylar Olsen, senior economist at Zillow.
The reason? A shortage of available rentals.
"Vacancy rates are at very low levels, which continues to push rents higher," said Andrew Jakabovics, senior director, Policy Development & Research at Enterprise Community Partners.
There's a lot of pressure on the rental market: Millennials are renting longer, housing inventory is tight, the housing crash has scared some would-be homeowners, and Baby Boomers are downsizing. There's also been a shift in people wanting to live in more urban areas, where renting is more common.
But there just aren't enough "For Rent" signs to keep up with the demand.
Rental construction slowed in the aftermath of the housing crisis as confidence shrank.
"We weren't building enough so when the economy recovered, vacancy rates got very tight," said Hans Nordby, a managing director with real estate research firm CoStar Group. "If you don't build apartments, it pushes rents up."
With incomes flat since the Great Recession, affordability has become a big problem too. About one in four renters in the U.S. spend at least half their household income on monthly rent payments, according to Angela Boyd, vice president at Enterprise Community Partners.
Lower- and middle-income renters tend to feel the inventory pinch the most. High-income renters who would have traditionally shifted to homeownership or occupied the more expensive rentals are staying put, according to Olsen.
Adding more supply will eventually ease some price pressure, she said. "It just takes time to creep down the distribution. People living in the older units now that aren't as luxurious migrate over to the new luxury units, and that opens upmore units."
But it takes about two years for rental buildings to become available in many markets, Nordby said, so the relief won't be immediate.
Plus, the building isn't proportionate for renters of different income levels. Many of the new constructions are for high-end and luxury rental buildings, said Norby.
He added that builders in some markets have overreacted to the rental crunch and have too many units in the works.
"Now, Houston and Washington, D.C., have way too much construction relative to growth. New York doesn't have nearly enough. The same with San Francisco."
Increasing the supply will only solve part of the problem. The majority of renters nationwide live in single family homes, according to Jakabovics.
Wages and employment opportunities also need to improve to help ease the cost of renting.
"For low- and moderate-income renters, those families paying 50%, 60% and 70% of income, this crisis isn't going away anytime soon," said Boyd.
