    Re: Broke Ground Today in Colleyville, TX

    A very different design for a rectangular pool - I love it! And the courtyard space is lovely for the pool. You're going to have wonderful views from inside. That could be a problem, though.... If it were me, the pool would always be calling me outside! I'd never get anything done in the house.

    The dig video is fun. The guys did a very neat and tidy job of it. Still, I can see that fine, fine dust billowing up all over the place. I don't envy ya'll that! I'm so glad to finally be rid of the dust, dirt, and mud.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the gunite!
    Take care,
    Suz.

    That is going to be an awesome spot for a pool! I would be SO worried one of the guys or something would hit one of those wonderful windows!

    Very cool videos! Sped up to where you can see everything coming together nicely but almost too fast to where you'll almost miss noticing one of the workers take a pee break in between the trees...

    unfortunately i'm sure there were plenty of potty breaks back there in the landscaping. just what it needs now that the irrigation lines are cut and my hand watering frequency is not as reliable as the automated system!
