    Yep, post pics! I love seeing how much limestone they have to bust through putting those central Texas pools in.

    I can't wait wait to see the progress of your pool and I love the design. It looks very similar to one we are hoping to build in Austin. We're still working on the plans with the builder. Would you mind sharing the name of your builder?

    Re: New Pool Build Round Rock, TX!!!

    Well, we actually interviewed and quoted six gunite builders...

    Cody
    Texas Pool & Patio
    Premiere Pool & Spas
    OceanQuest
    Anthony & Sylvan
    California Pools

    and one fiberglass

    Leisure Pools through Premier Fiberglass

    We decided to go with California Pools based upon the relationship, price, design, etc. Justin McGuire is the owner of CA Pools in Austin and he's been great. I also liked the fact that at least for now, he's owner and supervisor so I deal with only him!

    Is your pool going to be raised out of the ground slightly like the renditions suggest? If so i think that will be very neat, and will make for easy maintenance around the pool deck edges.

    Digging has begun! Hit rock a couple feet down so the hammering has commenced.

    I hope they hammer through your rock faster than they could mine. My dig in Austin took 2 1/2 weeks. Good Luck!

    Re: New Pool Build Round Rock, TX!!!

    Awesome! Congrats on the start of the build! We are very close to signing a contract (down to a couple of builders in the Austin area). I was curious about your deck - are you going with pavers? If so, did you find any place locally where you can see some good examples of paver decks? We are interested in going that route, but can only find small samples and they are not of the paver we want (Belgard Mega Laffit or possibly Dublin).

    Re: New Pool Build Round Rock, TX!!!

    It looks like we are going with Belgrad Dublin Cobble. We've only seen samples thus far, but our builder just finished installing Dublin Cobble on a deck in Teravista that we're going to check out in the next week or so. Don't know when you have to make an official decision on the paver, but you're welcome to check ours out when its done.

    Or, I'm sure our builder would be happy to let you check out his work if you selected him.

    Thanks for the offer! We'll need to make our decision soon I think so probably won't be able to wait that long. Hope your build goes well!

    Well, we're going for the natural pond look. Our chemistry seems to be way off? Not sure why!

    Clearly you are not following the BBB method properly!!

    I live in Cedar Park, but haven't been home this week. Sooo glad we are getting the rain.

    Do you like the lazy river we have? I'm thinking of telling them to go ahead and gunite that in as well!
