    Thanks... The plumbers just didnt bury the gas line deep enough under the driveway. Local here is 18", but I was told 12"-16" other areas around here. It does... hey it kept people out! Well we really cant take credit for the tile can we? Dont worry its not all we "stole" from you.

    LOL... none taken. I have never followed trends. Just watch, retro look will come back and everyone will ditch the current trends. Remember brick coping and flagstone?

    The gas was run Jan 25 and required removing part of my driveway. Unfortunately it wasnt buried properly and failed the inspection. It was finally passed Feb 7.

    New Pool in Frisco TX

    Looking good... I hope we dont regret not getting injections, by builder said my soil survey didnt quite justify it. And I hope most of this rain is over... it added 2 months to my build. I dont like to see anyone go through what we did.

    Steel done a week later, then gunite a week after that. I forgot to add it has pretty much been raining here constantly since December. And it always falls on the week days so nothing gets done. And on top of that the subs are always playing catch up. The last 6 weeks the place been a slurry of...

    Thanks folks... Yes... a bit challenging but it should be worth it! We made the right decision. PS If I dont reply its because I dont get on here too often.

    Then we spent around six weeks playing games with the power company to re-route, electricians to dig and lay conduit, a failed inspection a redo and finally new cable placed. Not to mention my fios fiberoptic cable being severed. And a couple of weeks to reroute sewer line which unfortunately...

    So a lot has happened since my last update. Decided to take the advice of the forum and remove the tree. Sad but we are already over it. That allowed for a new design. A design that allowes for future building in my yard.

    New Build - Rockwall, TX

    Smart to go light color plastere here in TX, should be nice and refreshing when its a million degrees out. And that spa tile job looks amazing! And my pool had tons of that leeching stuff too.

    DFW Pool Build Quote

    IMHO... I would get a couple more bids. Ours is similar in size but with a hot tub and Intellicenter and it wound up at $71k. Its not complete yet and I need to update my thread. We have quite a few upgrades as well. Pools in DFW seem to be higher than many other parts of the country from what I...

    Great ideas. Yes I wish I had Oncor. TNMP is $1750 and the lowest number for an electrician to trench lay conduit and cover it was $1600. Its 80 feet. The sewer runs diagonally through the yard. I had 3 bids from master plumbers. All in the $9-$10000 range. 70 feet 3-7 feet in depth. One company...

    Design change feedback needed ASAP

    Amazing property... it wouldn't bother me, but you could also "straighten" it with some landscaping.

    Thanks. I watched yours and what a nice build! Ok i will consider all of that, I also had a polaris before and hate that, robot is the only way to go. I just wish I knew what Im gonna have to do to have one gifted to me. As far as sod, I dont want ANY grass in my backyard anymore. I really...

    Any thoughts on the equipment? I believe the size is not too accurate. It will be larger. I want SWG from what I have seen here. TIA

    No Kidding, no wonder they can charge so much and blow off folks... Yeah, I do know the concerns... I have had a pool under mature trees before and it wasnt that bad, thetemperature difference is worth it to us. AND if it doesnt make it its not a huge deal. My builder is using an arborist to...
