Hello, I am new. This site is excellent and much appreciated.
We are undertaking a new build in Nicaragua for a big dipping pool. Very deep skinny house with a strange L porch.
Is about 21' x 21' with one corner 45'd. Deep is 68" shallow is about 44".
Will be all mosaic tile. Partially out of the ground. With a three seat bar on one outside edge. Future will be an outdoor kitchen in the lower left of the diagram.
This will be block with a bond beam bottom and top and rebar throughout.
Equipment will be.
7800 Gal all mosaic tile concrete FW
Pentair 420 SF Clean and Clear Plus cartridge filter
Pentair 1-1/2 Whisperflo 2 speed pump
Pentair cleaner boost pump
2 Intellibrite LED
2 Pentair LED Intellibrite Bubbler
4 Jandy deck jets
1 36" Sheer descent waterfall
2 Ceramic vase water pouring spouts
All Jandy valves
The pool will have a tanning deck at the top of the two sided steps
We will be renovating the floor of the porch and will install a home theater as well.
Since this is Nicaragua, it is more economical to hand dig the excavation.
We just started a couple hours ago.

Marked off and ready to dig. Just starting.
Tiles: The blue is the pool mosaic. The brown is accents for lines near edges of steps and seats. The red is for the porch (the existing porch tile is hideous 1970's vinyl) and the other large tile is for the pool deck.
Wood delivery for the bond beam forms!
Here is a simple crude diagram and elevation legend.
More to come.
