    New Build- Port St Lucie Florida

    Been a whirlwind of a week so far. Started the hole on Friday 09-11-15, got the pool formed,inspected and spraying the Gunite today. Going to try to post a few pics but I am not a technology genius so not sure how this will go. Pool is being built is a free form 14 X 28 with a sundeck and table. No hot tub and since we are in South Florida, no heat. Pentair Variable Speed pump and filter, Pentair LED lights, 6 x 6 waterline tiles, Great White Kreepy. First pool for us so hope it turns out good. Company is Pools By Greg in Port St Lucie.

    Seems like things are moving right along. How exciting! Have you picked what kind of interior you will have yet?

    That looks like it's going to be really nice! I tend to like the Tahoe colors, no matter who the manufacturer is.

    I love how they show it with "real" water beside it.

    It blows my mind how all of the colors work together to make the water that color. I would NEVER had thought all of the black and brown pebbles would throw that color of water. NICE!

    Looks like it's moving right along. We haven't had much work done this week. It's rain here everyday. PB just told me the steel guy will be here rain or shine to fix the spa. They formed it wrong. It was supposed to be flush with the pool and they have it entering the pool. We notice it right away but didn't have to say anything he caught it on his own.

    Re: New Build- Port St Lucie Florida

    Talk to me about that table---------It looks like they are going to pour it right there.......will they put anything in it like wire to add strength to it? Will you decorate it with tile or such????? That could be fun to do!

    Nice tile. It looks so pretty with the grout lines.

    Is that a glass tile?

    KimKats- I believe they are going to pour right there but also interested to see. Yes- they have some pcs of rebar set aside which you can't see in the photo but they are for the table. The tile on top will be the same as in the pool but there will be some patern or design. Originally thought to have them broken into small pieces and scattered on the table but apparently with glas tile it just doesn't work beause of breakage. The tile guy told me we would definitely like what he does with the design. Excited to see.

    Thanks- Wish I could take credit for the tile but it was the wife's decision. The initial thought was to go with something busier but thinking about re-sale down the road we decided to go conservative. The tile is glass. Thanks for checking in.
