    New Build in Myrtle Beach

    Hey guys. Been reading a lot over the past few months and we have decided to go ahead and pull the trigger on a pool. We broke ground yesterday and it is moving along fairly well. Biggest surprise so far is we did no hit any ground water. We sit very close to the water table hear at the beach. We decided to go with:

    Freeform 120 Linear feet gunite pool with a tanning shelf
    Wet Edge Satin Matrix North Shore Carribean Finish
    NPT Jules Series Rustic Blue Blend
    2 Jandy Pro Series Color LED Light
    Pump: Jandy e-Pump 2.0 JEP
    Filter: 3-Jandy CV 580 Cartridge
    Sanitation Ei 1400 Salt System
    Cleaner - Zodiac MX8
    Jandy JEP-R ePump Digital Variable Speed Pool/Spa Pump Remote Control

    Approximately 1000 sq ft of Techo-Bloc Blu 60mm Pavers in Harvest Gold
    Techo-Bloc Bullnose in Harvest Gold

    Day Two and the plumbing is being done and pool fencing already installed except for the access way for equipment.

    I will continue to post photos as we go along.

    Hopefully a we will meet the 4-5 week finish date.

    That is the same response we got from our neighbor's children when they saw the drawings.

    I like the shape also ... we were big on curves in our design for pool and gardens.

    Those forms look top shelf ... it'll almost be a shame to see them broken up (I'm a woodworker).

    I've seen people build decks with worse foundations than your temp form! Looks like a quality build in the works.

    Thanks for the positive input. Builder had very good references. I just can't wait to see how the finished product turns out. He has never used the Techo-Bloc pavers and we were all over the place with color choice and patterns. We went real basic. I will keep the pictures coming. The shell should be shot next Tuesday.

    Are you keeping/using that soil for something else or will they haul off eventually?

    Re: New Build in Myrtle Beach

    We are keeping the soil. We are using it to raise the surround grounds where the pavers are going. The backyard is on a small slope heading away from the pool. We will use the dirt to finish off the grade and ensure all rain water runs the direction we want. We have already run hard pipe to all down spout of the gutters to control that rain water. Attached is a you tube link of the proposed finished project. We have cut down the paver deck, we do not need as much of the retaining wall as we originally estimated, and we have eliminated the outdoor kitchen bar area this year. Also we have expanded the fencing so the dog has more room. We just finished the house reno and it went way over budget, so we had to cut cost on the pool. Back porch turned out great though. It is 20x24 fully screened with a gas fireplace, 50" tv on the wall, 5.1 surround in the ceiling with zone 2 and 3 going to the pool area. Attached are some photos of that.

    Day 3 is over, most of the rebar is in. Plumbing and electrical should start tomorrow.

    I can supply any information about the products on the screen porch if anyone is interested. I sourced it all myself.

    Re: New Build in Myrtle Beach

    Thanks. Both took a lot of work with the design. Had to make it fit in with the existing landscape. The woods to the left are wetlands and we did not want to be able to see the pool from the road. It is working out fairly well right now.

    Love the porch and the work on the pool so far looks top notch. From the photos, it seems you have the privacy you are looking for with the trees/wetlands. - Karen

    The flooring is just brushed concrete with a brick inlay. There was an existing porch with a brick boarder, so when we expanded the porch, we used the same brick and broke the porch into 3 parts using the brick inlay as the divider.

    Re: New Build in Myrtle Beach

    So we took a few days away from the project and come back to this. Plumbed, electrical almost completed, bullnose, tile, and 1100 sq ft of pavers. We are waiting on the other 200 sq ft to be delivered. We decided to expand the deck area a little more.
