    New Pool Build - McKinney Texas (North Texas)

    So we are actually almost done with the pool build, but we have been so busy that I haven't had a chance to share any of the pictures or progress. I'll just post the pics in the stages that took place...

    The pool is in ground, gunite, 4-5-4, spa, sundeck, outdoor kitchen, jandy everything, aux pump for waterfalls, boulder tile, and all the other good stuff

    OK, this thread completely freaked me out. I thought my pictures had disappeared.

    Who was your builder?

    This is the pre-site survey to lay out the pool. We were pretty happy with it!

    IMG_6644.jpg
    Equipment showed up! They brought in the big excavator! There were only a few inches on either side of it as they brought it between the houses.

    We asked for a place to set our drinks in the rock. This is the base of the table rock waterfall. The entire back side of the pool is all waterfalls

    It's an Oklahoma stone. Sandstone type I believe. They cut and chisel every single piece of it!

    LOL I know I know! We just wanted to set something in there to get an idea of the height. We have the no glass in the pool rule Oh, and that's our small doberman. We have 2 others, but much larger

    I believe they call it Oklahoma chopped stone. Same stuff we have on our back wall. Goes well with flagstone coping.
