    New Pool Build Rockwall, TX

    Hello All,

    After many days of lurking on this site I have started our pool here in Texas and decided to post some pics. Through this forum I was able to make a few decisions and read some good advice from fellow members. We went chlorine due to our builders advice and what I have researched. We will see how that goes. Anyway, these are current as of 1/31/2014. More pics to follow.

    17 by 32 free form gunite

    3.5 to 4.5 to 4ft deep play pool (14,500 gallons)

    sundeck with 2 bubblers and two benches in pool.

    Brass sleeves for volleyball net
    Sand colored textured decking (640 Sqft)

    Oklahoma flagstone coping with noble tile at the waterline

    Aqua blue plaster from stonescapes.

    That is some very tight work conditions for that machine.... Is that a road on the other side of the fence? Are you planning on putting a privacy fence up when completed?
    Good luck with the build.

    Hi, no road. It is about a 3 foot drop off with a retaining wall. The fence must remain metal in the back because it is a "green zone" according to the city/HOA. It is a small pond, It does look like a road though now that I look closely at the pic.

    Ok, finally figured it out. Looks like photobucket is the way to go.

    We are at the gunite stage now. Waiting for it to cure for 7days.

    Next is tile and coping.

    We got off easy on this side of the state. We're dry again, supposed to get to upper 40's.

    Good luck!
