    I was referring to the travertine coping tiles when I said, “not sure it looks correct.” The very large pitting in the travertine coping is not to our tastes. Our builder said they could pull the ones that have large pits and fill in the smaller ones with the “sanded?” mortar. Here’s a picture...

    Thanks for the tip on flagstone. We went and looked at a pool with flagstone and opted to change to bullnose travertine.

    Great tips regarding the tile. I really like your’s. I didn’t notice the waterline as I was looking at the flagstone. I will definitely be going to a tile shop. Which pebble color did you choose? I’m going to see some in person before I decide.

    Your flagstone does look great. I also like the toe tile (I think that’s the name for the step tile?) That’s very good information. Do you know what type of flagstone you have? We have chosen Oklahoma Flagstone.

    Hi Kim, Do you have any suggestions on the ledges and benches inside the pool? We are meeting with the designer tomorrow to make changes. We are going to make the sun shelf a little bigger to hold 3 chairs. My husband is handling the technical details of equipment, etc. He’s leaving me the...

    Hi Kim Skimmer - Good catch. I was thinking the skimmers should not be on the same side of the pool also? Wind will primarily come from the sides and north. The back of the house faces northwest. Here are some pictures of the yard.

After 5 months of reading this website, interviewing builders, stressing and discussing, we have chosen a PB and received the first drafts of the design. Not only is this our first home purchase, but also our...
