Finished enough for pics, anyway. Still going thru the last of the punch list...brass drain covers on order, etc. But...WE ARE DONE!! I feel like I should get some pool maternity leave now . We haven't gotten in to swim yet, but the june bugs are LOVIN' IT! It's awesome. Even better than the picture I had in my head, and in the end, I'm so glad I went for the glass tile. We've started lanscaping, but have a long way to go. Working on the fire bowls for the columns. I still can't believe this is my back yard. Total transformation. My PB did a very good job, especially with the materials I chose.
PebbleSheen was done Feb. 20 and acid washed the 21st...filled the pool (a mighty 7000 gallons total - teeny tiny pool), and did Pool School on Monday 23rd. The TF-100 Test Kit has been one of the BEST things I've done so far...if you don't have one, consider getting one. Thanks for looking, everyone!
We'll be bricking the really attractive wooden column soon:
