    New dig June 11th TX

    Hello all, been reading for a while and very good forum with good people is my consensus! Thought I would share where we stand on our pool. This is our second pool and in DFW area just north side of Lake Lewisville. We built a pool in Houston ~7 years ago and company moved us so here we go again but quite simpler than our last one with spa, waterfall, etc. this is planned to be our long term fish, lake, sport home, kids are 1 and 1 out of college now! Builder is moving swiftly with the dig dat being June 11th you can see where we are today. Hope the pics come through ok...

    Hello and welcome! Yes, the link provided took me to your Photobucket album. Nice pics. FYI, if you didn't already know, you can also upload your pics directly to this post (thread) by copying & pasting the IMG code for each pic from Photobucket to your TFP post. Works great as well.

    All I did there was go to one of your links on your Photobucket page. To the right you'll see different "codes". Put you cursor over the "IMG" code and click ONCE. It should say "Copied". Then just copy it back to this thread like I did above.

    Dug June 11th and Gunite June 20th. They flashed it to be safe just before TS Bill came through and put in a pump to rid any excess water in the hole. Seemed to be just fine with getting between the weather issues.

    Great progress, Daxton! And welcome to TFP! Thanks for posting the pictures. I'm a lazy person - so hard to click on links to view photos on photo bucket! LOL!!!

    The back of your house is beautiful. It has an almost steeple look about it! Do you have the plan drawings you can share, so we can see what you're shooting for? And thanks for putting the pool info in your signature!

    Congratulations on your pool! You are lucky with the crews slipping in and out between rain events! Some of us aren't so fortunate!!! Grrrrrr. Take care. Suz.

    Re: New dig June 11th TX

    Really pleased with the progress! We will have a nice stone step from off the existing patio (looking to make it about 18" wide to help with safety) and then down on to washed aggregate. I am really going for long lasting and little maintenance as possible on this build. Hope it tums out that way.

    It is looking great so far. I really like how you tied the little retaining wall into the deck area, that is going to be so pretty.

    Just sharing a bit more progress. Should be pouring patio next 2days with a few umbrella sleeves and volleyball pole sleeves then sprinkler fence fix and cleanup. Hope to have plaster in 10'days.
    Anyone see anything we should tweak/add?

    It looks wonderful!!!! That deck will be fabulous. And I love the retaining walls - is that what you call the stacked stone? I love that look! Thanks so much for the update! Keep 'em coming!

    Take care,

    I like the rebar instead of wire mesh, stronger deck. Pool looks great and a great spot for it in the backyard.

    Re: New dig June 11th TX

    Deck is in, we needed to do a step from current patio as it is part of homes foundation to fit the grade of back yard. Needed to Break up the difference in visual affect with some flagstone on top of step for transition.
    Now Sprinkler, fence repair, and cleanup before mini pebble Aqua Blue or Caribbean blue..?..?..

    Nice. Now you just need some water before this sun gets any hotter.
