The PB just left this evening to go over final details. Digging starts tomorrow morning.
We've chosen a 16 x 30 kidney shaped vinyl lined pool. It will have 8' steps with bucket seats (in same blue color as liner; the computer model shows white in the below pics), with an 8' x 4' "beach" area with 6" shallow water depth for lounging. We will have concrete cantilever coping 2' around the pool, with pavers making up the rest of the patio, connecting to the existing wood deck.
The pool will have a flat bottom (4' water depth) across. Due to the shallow depth throughout, we've opted against the dual main drain and will have 6 returns with 2 skimmers. I'll keep the pics updated as often as possible.
