    Pergolas and pavillions with new pool build - Tampa recommendations wanted

    Don’t forget if your from Florida you will need something stronger to secure a pavilion from hurricanes. Check on city guidelines, cause we have had neighbor’s sited for not having the right permits for putting together an outside structure.

    Dam those are great prices! For pool and cage? Wow! I also think adding the steps to the sunshelf would look amazing!

    Starting soon, Tampa area. - **Build complete!** 4/21

    Your pool is looking amazing! That’s the same color shellock we will be using! Our neighbors have the grey shellock for his driveway that’s how we found out about it! Good to know it’s cooler especially here in south FL! Can’t wait for the finished pics!

    New pool build in Boca Raton FL!

    Haven’t chosen the exact color yet but I’m thinking a quartzite plaster because I don’t like the feel of the pebbles, and it will most probably be a white based one because I hear darker shades get warmer in the summer months! But I will be sure to update once I decide 👍

    New Construction- feeling overwhelmed

    It’s so funny because before I started to pick colors for my own pool, I couldn’t care less what ppl had in their pool when I came over for a swim. I think only us pool builders are as meticulous as to tile and pool colors. Our friends will just think w have an amazing pool! So don’t sweat it...

    New Pool - East Texas

    You should definitely look into more lights, as you cannot add lighting after the pool is finished. That’s the one regret my neighbor had, his pb said he would do fine with one light and his deep end is very dark at night.

    Florida folks...costs?

    I agree it’s cheaper to buy a house with a pool but for us in this crazy Florida market it’s better to just bite the bullet and install one if you don’t have one. There are benefits to installing one exactly how you like it though as many homes with a pool usually need something done to it.

    New Pool in Orlando

    I kinda agree with Herman, I think if you were to keep the rectangular design and do a long bench/ or two L shaped benches, instead of the arch benches you would have a more streamlined look and more pool space. And of course my opinion, but I think cake steps are a little outdated especially...

    Florida folks...costs?

    Basic pool packages for a 12x24 pool were quoted to me about 28k. Then for your desired lenght and width, you have to add more linear ft, (one guy quoted me 3k for 10 Liner feet) Adding a spa is about 10k-15k more. Then you have to add decking (this depends on how much sqft and if your going...
