Have been following along for several weeks now and our dig date is scheduled for next week Hoping for Tuesday!! We went with a small PB out of Denton, TX. Was recommended by a friend and after getting bids and interviewing three different PBs, he was our favorite. I just really want a place to chronicle the build!
It will be 30 X 18 in-ground gunite freeform with a raised spa. We have a pretty small yard with an already existing cedar- arbor/gazebo that is shingled to match the house and has a concrete foundation so that will serve as our outdoor covered patio and where people will mostly hang when outside of the pool. We also have a screened in porch on the back of the house but it is smaller and narrower. We have an over-sized swing and a couple of chairs in there but no dining space. Plus it gets pretty warm in there in the heat of the day as only one side of it is open with the screens. We are lucky that we back up to a green-belt with tons of outdoor space the kids can still play in since we are losing almost all of our yard space. Pool will have a 6 foot tanning ledge and two barstools that will face the gazebo. There will be a weeping wall on the opposite side. It is a play or sports pool that will go from 3.5 foot to 6 foot then back to 4.5 feet deep.
Posting but will edit to add drawings when I get them uploaded to photobucket.
