    1. Setup a PhotoBucket account and link to photos hosted there
    2. Grab a membership. You get more posting storage.

    (not necessarily in that order...)


    Nice design. You have a lot of landscape options to play with as well!


    Good luck!

    Re: New Build Largo, Florida

    I would suggest not having the light positioned @ the deep end pointing back towards the screened patio.
    The glare will be unpleasant.
    Placing it on the 'hump' between the seat and sun shelf, or doing 2 lights; one under sunshelf and one on deep side of hump would give a more pleasing glow for folk in your entertaining areas.

    Is the bubbler lit?

    Re: New Build Largo, Florida

    I have looked and read and still not seeing how to "grab a membership" is it the same as become a supporter?

    - - - Updated - - -

    I have actually moved the swimout to the back right side of pool I'll try to attach the updated drawing, also no more waterfall. Opted for the sheer descent and sconces instead.

    Re: New Build Largo, Florida

    Right, it's a little confusing. Just registering with a username and password makes you a member which is free. Clicking on the "Become a TFP Supporter" button at the top left of the page gives you additional photo allowance and some other perks. I believe it's $30 for a Lifetime Supporter (one time fee/donation) and scroll down if you want to do more. Both levels give you a discount off the TF Test Kits (larger discount on the higher level). Being a supporter is optional. Isn't TFP great?!!!

    Take care,

    ...we already had to tweek the pool a little because of power lines running to the house.

    Re: New Build Largo, Florida

    I love your plans! But I'm going to cry seeing that gorgeous backyard torn up. It's so pretty and obviously well-loved! I know, when the pool is in and all is completed it will be worth it. And no doubt the new landscaping will be given the same tender loving care. Stilllll.......

    It was much easier for me. My yard was in such terrible condition that I hardly minded at all that it was dug up. I didn't so much enjoy that part, but I didn't lose a beautiful yard like yours!!!

    Congrats on the new baby!!! (yes, it's much like having a baby - hopefully not 9 months!!)

    Oh.... that IS sad. But - It will be worth it. It will be worth it. It will be......

    I hope you guys don't have to say that for too long!

    p.s. What happened to your nice big photos? I'm not used to these little ones, and my old lady eyes can barely see these on my great big computer screen!

    I don't know I uploaded from photbucket and they were small. The first ones I just uploaded from my computer, but then it kept saying the file was to big?

    Oh well, don't worry about it. Maybe someone will come along with the answer. Or, I'll just have to pull out my super-duper strength readers!

    Yep, I figured that out. And yep.... I'm lazy! (well, it's easy on the computer, but sometimes loading things on my cell take forever - and yep I'm technologically spoiled for instant action).

    Thanks,

    Congratulations!! Will be closely following your post since we are in St Pete. We are currently in the investigative phase and Larsens has been a recommended PB from multiple sources. Can't wait to see the progress.

    Thank You, We definitely didn't pick Larsen's because they were the cheapest! So hopefully all the high recommendations will pay off for us!

    Silver split faced travertine for around the planter, and Pebble Sheen Blue Surf, and Noble tile Odyssey Siren for waterline. I'm hoping this tile isn't to green for the Blue Surf...originally we wanted Deep Sea or Turtle Bay but were to concerned about the heat.
