    New pool build, Georgia

    Here are some pics of our pool build.

    So many decisions to make, we've found this forum to be a great resource.

    Enjoy.[attachment=2:266ypxom]SAM_0651 003-b.jpg[/attachment:266ypxom][attachment=1:266ypxom]SAM_0655 007-b.jpg[/attachment:266ypxom][attachment=0:266ypxom]SAM_0661 013-b.jpg[/attachment:266ypxom]

    Looks good. Be sure to wet that down frequently as it begins its cure.

    Travertine coping is finished, and will be sealed shortly.

    Once the decking and waterfall are in, we will have more stonework done. Can't wait to get my yard back, but so far this has been a good project. If I can offer any advise for someone planning to undertake this endevour it would be to take your time in picking out the material for the look you're going for, and have fun doing it.

    The decking is in and finished. We added a planter around the site for the waterfall and two planters near the sunshelf that will be wrapped in stacked stone with flagstone coping.

    Its getting close. I can almost get wet.[attachment=2:1wqw1wz5]Deck and Grade 001.JPG[/attachment:1wqw1wz5][attachment=1:1wqw1wz5]Deck and Grade 002.JPG[/attachment:1wqw1wz5][attachment=0:1wqw1wz5]Deck and Grade 003.JPG[/attachment:1wqw1wz5]

    Re: New pool build, Georgia

    Here are the latest photos. A ton of work, literally, has been completed. We decided on Aqua Blu Pebbletec for those of you looking for ideas. We look forward to the final water color, but for now this is what we can provide. I will post tomorrow after the acid wash process is complete. For those not familiar, like I wasn't when we started our build, the color comes out of the rock after the acid wash, and about two weeks of cleaning and brushing, so don't judge the color just yet.[attachment=201c3czs]Pebbletec 003.JPG[/attachment01c3czs][attachment=101c3czs]Pebbletec 011.JPG[/attachment01c3czs][attachment=001c3czs]Pebbletec Aqua Blue 006.JPG[/attachment01c3czs]
