    Wish I would have known about this site during my research....would have helped so much during the process of a selecting a PB. But I'm so excited to get the build going, starting tomorrow...fingers crossed!

    Weird stuff blowing across our state tonight. Be safe. I vacuumed yesterday, that's why the storms are coming. Just like washing a car.

    Here is sprayed digging "map." It's hard to see and was hard to get in a picture. And I can't get it rotated!

    LOL on the upside down pic! Are you on an Apple product?

    Looking at your diagram I would think about making the walkway from the patio to the pool wider. If you have kids you KNOW they will "race" to the pool and may not stay on the walkway=dirt and grass in pool.

    Digging, digging, digging=MUD LOL Let the MUD begin!

    Make sure to check on them and let them know you are are around so they can ask questions as they go. You would not believe some nice changes or ideas they come up with while they are working on the pool.

    Apple likes to help people post their pics upside down. The easiest way to post pics here is to upload them to Photobucket (free), copy the IMG code to the right of the pic and paste it in your post. This will embed the pic into your thread.

    I am doing this on my mobile phone, but it is a Samsung! It has not upside down in my files. Craziness.

    Good point on the walkway...in fact we brought that up yesterday to the PB. We're also moving it some.

    Hey look another Texas build. Congratulations and welcome to TFP. The layout looks good. Who is your PB and what equipment did they spec? Most around here love to sell tab feeders and ozone. I take it the contract is already signed but if they sold you on low chlorine ozone I would not have it plumbed. Ask questions.... That's what this forum is for. Take lots of pictures of the build.
