    New Construction-Houston TX

    Since we have snooped on this site for so long, I thought I would do my part and post our pool construction along with pictures. The excavation crew came out today and it has officially started.

    Day three they sent out a clean up crew and today (Day 4) nothing really happened. I have to spray down the pool twice a day for the next 7 days and the plumbers and electrical team will be out during that time. Other than that, not really much going on in the next week.

    We plan on using a pebble finish, WetEdge Satin Matrix. We are still debating over a few different colors right now.

    It has been crazy around here. Week 2 was this past week and they took care of the tile, coping, and started framing for the decking. Here are some pics.

    Re: New Construction-Houston TX

    So I am a little behind on posting pics. The pool is pretty much complete. We filled it this weekend. They are finishing up the spray coating tomorrow and then next week they will add the diving board when we go through pool school. Here are the pictures I have so far up to the plaster point. I will post more next week when everything is up and running and we are done!
