    Another New IG Pool Build - McKinney Texas - Must be something in the water...

    Much like KennyZ06 described in his thread, our pool is getting close to completion, but I am just now getting around to creating a thread for our build. We signed the contract around April 20, went through HOA approval, survey delays, etc. and finally broke ground around May 20. Although we are expecting the possibility of rain tomorrow, we are actually hoping that we will get plaster tomorrow. But for history's sake, I will go back and post progress pictures from the beginning.

    Here is the picture of the yard before breaking ground


    Construction begins






    Dig complete


    Plumbing Begins




    Rebar Begins




    Rebar Complete


    Gunite Stage






    Gunite Complete


    Water line tile




    Stone work for Waterfall






    Back of Waterfall


    Finished Waterfall




    Dry Stack for Spa


    Back Side of Spa


    Time to build the Exposed Aggregate Decking


















    Clean up begins and surrounding grading begins






    That is where we stand today. Hoping for the rain to hold off until we can get the plaster poured tomorrow. Fingers crossed.

    Hope the rain holds off for you guys! The pool looks fantastic and I love the waterfall you have going on there! Keep posting pics!

    Oh and did you order a good test kit yet? If not, check out these Test Kit Comparison. The TF100 is the best value for the money. The test kit, the best out there, is a huge investment in pool water care and clarity.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    Nice - another McKinney-ite! Nice big back yard, too.....that was (and is) still the major downfall to my house.

    Looks good so far! You must be aching to have it done. fingers crossed for no rain!

    I have a funny feeling that it must get hot or something in Texas. There so many of you with pools! Keeping the pool builders busy!

    I could agree with delayed rain, but no rain is no bueno.
