    It's finished!

    I posted some in progress pic's of our new pool back in January as it was nearing completion in this thread: http://www.troublefreepool.com/threa...-Austin-Texas!

    It has been finished for a couple months now but my wife and I have been busy cleaning up the muddy mess after the construction. A few days ago our deck builder sent someone out to take some marketing shots, and was kind enough to share them.

    I'll be honest, at this point I'm just ready to show it all off!

    Very nice! I love that oak through the deck ... and of course the pool. Perfect color and the spillway is nice as well.

    Re: It's finished!

    Thanks! Its actually a sycamore, and it gives the deck and pool great shade, which is AWESOME here in Austin. That said, I have yet to experience fall with a giant tree over my pool...

    My goal is to have enough fun with the kids in the pool this summer that it's worth it no matter what!

    That IS worth showing off! I remember your build! It all came out so nice! So worth it (but I do not have to clean up after the tree hehe).
