Thanks to all the knowledge I've gained in these forums we've finally signed a contract. We're still a month away from digging so we're open to suggestions and input.
Back yard before picture, the white poles are where the pool corners will be....we were somewhat limited due to 50' setback from the water line. It ended up being 16 by 40 (for swimming laps) with approx 8 feet between the house and pool.
Early draft (before the pricing) (we're not planning on the big palms either)
And the latest plan. We had to cut back on the retaining wall and pavers in order to keep the auto-cover. It's supposedly the newest stainless steel cable model from Coverpools. We have small children and didn't want to obstruct the view of the bay with fences.
The two tanning ledges are 5" and 15" deep with a 4' deep 1' wide ledge around the deep end outside walls.
