    Wink New pool build-tampa!

    I have been following these boards for ideas and knowledge shared. This is our first pool build and it's so exciting to experience the conceptual to finish product. We had 4 bids and in the end, reputation, follow up and overall gut feeling finalized our decision, not the lowest price, not the highest price.
    Following are some specs-
    We are building a 15x30 pool
    3-5ft
    9x6 sunshelf wrap around step down umbrella holder, bubbler
    raised pool wall with 36" shear descent
    Over 1400 sq ft of french pattern travertine select
    Screen enclosure
    pool heater
    etc..

    Had to remove (2) live oaks . One Oak was in the way unfortunately and the other wasn't healthy and Arborist recommendation to rid of now then later. 3 robolinis and a sago)-All day work on these-fantastic tree company if anyone needs a referral?

    Re: New pool build-tampa!

    Thank you! Instead of a hottub, we opted for a larger sunshelf with wrap-around stairs. The little ones can play on it and adults can lounge on it.
    I did find a company called ledgeloungers.com that make chaise loungers specifically for sunshelfs. Pricey though! Can always go the resin route to avoid staining and such with a salt water pool.
    I hope these images show up, had some trouble, thanks butterfly for your help
