    Very impressive! You are one hands on dude, and I really like...well everything you showed, very nice man! How did you decide on no tile line? Curious, and I like "different" or unusual choices sometimes. Cool stuff.

    Re: Houston

    Doing pool building research, I found pebble tech and diamond brite plaster can be used above/outside of waterline . reg. plaster cannot . My wife hates the white calcium line on the tile look . So no tile , she still scrubs the waterline faithfully she scrubs the moss rock also . which is a soft stone she is wearing it down ... she goes through stainless wire brushes every couple months

    It showed me the cantilever edge and no tile line . I had to show my decking guy the cantilever forms and where to buy them he wasn't familiar with it.. Styrofoam forms to extend the ledge out over pool
