    I don't know that I've ever seen the waterline tile done that way. That's going to look really nice!

    I really like that waterline tile. Does anyone know if you could use that kind of stone on a fiberglass pool? Thanks

    Halfway through masonry....

    Had one small problem so far; the dive rock they put in isn't quite what we discussed, but they will be taking care of that today or tomorrow. And honestly if that is my only problem things are going perfect.

    Main entry after masonry:



    Entire pool site - not all the stone is set yet but the layout is basically finished.



    Closer view of masonry around hot tub and spring is partially rocked in.

    Pool is done....

    Well the third time in my case was the charm. Masons came out the second time and didn't really get it still, had to take a day off for the third try to get it right. But here it is one photo of filling the other two are a full pool. I did take some other photos along the way if anyone wants to see something specifically let me know and I'll post it or take a photo for you.





    Filling up...


    Pool filled....


    Another view of the full pool....


    Pictures aren't great I took them as the sun was rising, I'll try to get some others in full day light soon. Also a side note the Wetedge Satin Midnight Sea is amazing. It looks like a black sand beach, the pieces of abalone shell really make it pop in the sunlight. I'll try to get some pics of that as well.

    I really like the boulder "in" the deep end. It gives the pool some dimension that isn't usually created.

    Looks great! Congrats.
