    Future infinity pool location

    Hi all, new member here.

    I am planning on building a house with an infinity pool here. Trying to learn as much as possible from this forum before starting this project.

    What a view! That's the perfect background for an infinity edge. Looking forward to pictures of it going together. Good luck!

    Ideally, the line of sight from the deck would go to the water and above any land or structures.

    The pool elevation will be about the height of the wall on the left.

    Re: Future infinity pool location

    What you might want to do is to put up a string line where the top of the infinity edge will be so that you can get an idea of what you will see from various points around the pool. Ideally, you would only see water from the side closest to the house. The pool water should blend into the water in the distance.

    Martin, that design is my inspiration. JamesW, I will have to try your sight line suggestion.

    Thanks Royd.

    I think you will find that the drop on your site continues over a longer stretch and therefore standing outside the pool you may see the lower portion of land. If you stand far enough back, you will get the illusion you are looking for. Non the less, I like your hill top position
