    NW Austin IG Construction -- here we go!

    I'll have to go find out :) We got PebbleSheen, and I *think* we got the Blue Surf, but it's been months since we picked out colors, so I'll try to remember to come back to verify!

    NW Austin IG Construction -- here we go!

    Well, it has been a long time since I've last posted. Since the last post, they've ripped of the pavers, taken down the fill, compacted the fill, added rebar, poured concrete, reinstalled pavers. Then the steps were cracking and too thin, so they ripped out all the steps, ordered new ones with...

    NW Austin IG Construction -- here we go!

    Hello everyone. I wanted to update on the progress. After many weeks of delays and back-and-forth with the PB, they agreed to pop off all the pavers and address the issues. So, they popped off the pavers and started compacting just the top. I'm no expert, but in reading about the importance...

    NW Austin IG Construction -- here we go!

    Thanks. Spoke to PB this morning. For this section, it appears that they're going to fix it properly -- take off pavers, let the roadbase dry out (including taking some/much of it out). Also confirmed that manual tamping is insufficient compaction, so will get that compacted. They will also...

    Ugh, not feeling good about this. There are no drainage holes in the "footers" as the PB calls them, and they didn't compact. Quick question -- if they have several feet of roadbase fill, is it sufficient for them to compact just the top? Or given the depth (several feet in some cases) do they...

    NW Austin IG Construction -- here we go!

    Hello everyone. It's been awhile since I've posted, I promise to get more pics and videos put up. However, I need some community help with an issue. We have had concrete pavers (from stonecreekpavers) installed on top of "roadbase". As you can see from the pictures, following the reasonably...

    NW Austin IG Construction -- here we go!

    Okay. Picture time. Things seem to be moving quickly -- excavation, forming, rebar, and plumber dropped of pipes today. Had to tell PB that rebar (8" OC, yay!) was insufficient -- supposed to be double curtain over 3' out of grade. Looks like I have a very expensive above ground pool so far :D...

    8/2/2018: Excavation started yesterday!! Timelapse of my security camera for viewing enjoyment. Already found that the "Sundeck" portion of the pool was not long enough when considering excavation for the coping, PB acknowledged and will address. 5UX68SE0CcM
