    New gunite pool build in coastal NC

    After 2 years of trying to pull this project together, I finally found a contractor (out of state) to get it done. It's been 2 straight weeks of construction and we are now ready for the shotcrete that starts on Monday.

    8" thick walls and floor
    4000 psi

    im now spending countless hours figuring out decking, retaining walls and landscaping. I'm hoping I've made all the right choices on the pool details.

    Nice! Can you tell us the dimensions and depth of the pool? It looks like they've done a really tidy job so far.

    Do you have a plan or a Pool Studio rendering of your concept? Looks great so far! You have a nice lot!
