    Beautiful well thought out design..!! Any reason why you didn't include a spa with the pull? I'm guessing you live where you won't keep the pool open year around?

    Thanks!. We decided to go with an after market spa. They don't look as nice but they are so much more comfortable.

    They are pretty cool. We see them at the fair every year and can't believe how many features they have. Disco lights, cup holders, TV's, stereos, messagers... not mention self containment of all the equipment.

    Good luck with your build.. we are about 1-1/2 weeks away from the finish on ours!

    I do feel your pain.... We dug out rock then had to buy tons of the stuff to fill in to create a back yard. Beautiful design!

    Love it! Love your huge sunshelf! That is the only thing I am not competely happy with so far is I should have done a bigger sunshelf! I didn't want to take away from my pool area, but now seeing the pool, it is so big I had plenty of room! Oh well, still love it.. but love that shelf! Going to be so nice!

    Looks great. I love the look of the plaster. I wanted to go darker, but the boss did not. Can't wait to see the final pictures. I would think about having them change your jets out to a black instead of while.

    I'm sure you'll be giving that heat pump a work out!

    You don't have small children do you? I find dark plaster, while cool looking, very hard to see into.

    Good luck!
