    WOW! All of that in 1 week? Maybe if I get mine started in the next few weeks I may still get some swim time in thsi year!

    Looks very nice! What finish are you using?

    When they say 18x38, is that at the widest points or an average size? i.e. the 38 part is pretty easy, but how do they get the 18' width?

    For the plaster we decided on the Diamond Brite - Super Blue. We like the look of Pebble Tech but feel it's much rougher on the feat considering we have some younger kids and don't want to take any chances...

    It's 18ft wide on one side and 22ft wide where the tanning deck is located...

    He warned me that it would go fast. He only builds a few pools at a time (trying to overlap during during phases) and doesn't believe in any "down" time when other things could be getting done...

    Hi agent, Beautyful build!
    Finally did I understand how a concrete coping is made, thanks to your pics. Do you know a site where I can read up on those cellular plastic frames that you form with? And also the "dividers" that you have inbetween the sections on your deck? are those also made of celluar plastic?
    I would love to be able to order those items to my deck.

    Thanks!

    Hi Mats,

    Try http://www.stegmeier.com/.

    The cantilever forms come in many different shapes. They are typically made from styrofoam and are not cheap. At least by my definition of cheap.

    I love all my trees, but I think I'm going to regret keeping all the massive pine trees. The pine needles are already starting to stain my new spray deck!!!
