I wouldn't leave you hanging but I will say you're brave! There's one site, Pool Designs that has what you want but it won't load up completely for me. So, give this site a try over a few days to see if you can get 'through'.

A number of other sites are worth checking out. If they only list pre-built pools, contact them to see if they'll sell you plans.

Sundance Pools,
Pool Books (?),
Pools and Spas On-line,
Scott Pools,
Swimming Pools.

You'll have to get a number of permits and have a number of inspections. The building codes are strict for this because of the liabilities. If the pool is not properly permitted and/or not properly built, your insurance company may not pay a claim if there's any covered damage resulting from a non-conforming pool. If you're 'sour' with any of your neighbors, they may look for pay-back. (Please understand, I'm assuming you're trying to save a lot of $$$ by doing this job yourself. I could be completely wrong too.)

Going with my assumption, if you want to save some $$$, see if you can hook-up with someone that HELPS a contractor build pools. For some side-work money, he may be willing to help/guide you. And most likely, he knows all the permits and codes involved. I know, for me, I wouldn't mess with the construction aspect. The finishing aspect, I certainly would. (Fencing, sealing, decking, etc., etc..)

My best to ya and hope this helps.
