    New pool build - Owner-builder

    Yup. Here is a picture. We have it on both sides. Not much of a bolt, but it was enough for inspection.

    Our heater and filter had to be bolted down and were checked during inspection. We live in Orange County.

    Getting started! Owner Build in SoCal

    I should also say the pool looks a little cloudy in the video. It was in the morning before our start up pool guy came to adjust everything. We did hire someone to help us get started. He is coming daily in the beginning and then slowly tapering off after the salt is able to be introduced...

    So there is still a bunch of little projects (landscaping, the bench topper and planters, acid washing the concrete, etc) to finish up- but, we are mostly done! It has been a serious process and I appreciate every single person who has helped us or encouraged us along the way. I never in a...

    I have to tell you that we asked no less than four times about the color. Then when it was first sprayed it looked SO different that I went outside with the sample (it was okay, but I had a heart attack). I think the poor guys thought I was nuts. At one point the guy installing spilled his red...

    We got plaster!!! Tomorrow they will be back to acid wash it, we’re also meeting with a start up guy the plaster company recommended, and then... WATER! We picked the Micro Fusion in Tahoe and then added glass to it. We originally liked the Radiant Fusion, which seemed to be the same except...

    Hardscape is pretty finished. Guys just wrapped up today and will be back after plaster to finish. Preplaster inspection on friday morning. Couldn’t get a fence company to install in time, so we are using door alarms and the pool alarm for passing inspection. Fencing will come late July...

    Concrete Pavers.....

    We used StepStone concrete pavers. Not sure if someone locally sells them by you. We live close to their manufacturing facility in Los Angeles. I’m assuming they sell nationally.

    Plaster Installer in Orange County, Ca SoCal?

    Our tiling is wrapping up and we are getting much closer to final inspection and plaster. Unfortunately, everyone (except one company that was way beyond our price range) are busy, and most plaster companies won’t even call back. Was wondering if any of you used a company that you had a good...

    We are almost done tiling! Just the top of the spa (spillover) is left. Which actually took a while to debate on how to arrange the tile. SO many of the tile have to be cut at a 45degree angle that it has made the tiling process very long. After this, we move on to grout and as they wrap up...
