My wife and I got married in our last year of college. We were going to wait until College was over, but we wanted to be married sooner than that. My parents and her parents came for the wedding, which was held in the rec center at the school. We didn’t have a huge ceremony, but it was nice. After our last year of school, my wife and I decided to move to Elgin, illinois. My parents live in Elgin and they offered to buy us a house. My wife and I could not say no to the offer. Even if there were strings attached, we weren’t going to say no to the extravagant offer. My parents let us pick a house. My wife and I looked at several properties in Elgin, illinois. My wife got a job working at the high school as a 10th grade science teacher. I got a job working at JP morgan. We were earning really good money and we didn’t have any problems paying our mortgage. When my wife mentioned putting a heated pool in the backyard, I thought it sounded like an excellent idea. We contacted a pool contractor that specializes in ground heated pools. The pool and heating contractor came to the house to give us an estimate for the services. I was expecting the pool to cost around $20,000. I was happily surprised by the estimate for the work. The pool was not going to cost as much money as I anticipated, even if we heated all of the water. The Elgin contractor set up the pool with a special heating system that uses geothermal energy from underground to heat up the pool. The system was expensive to install, but it only costs pennies on the dollar to run.
