    Summersatthelake Pool Build

    Been lurking for awhile but thought it was time to jump in. Shotcrete is going in starting tomorrow morning (NO RAIN TONIGHT!!) at 8:00 and I have a live web cam if anyone wants to view the progress. Here is a link to the camera:
    http://24.182.136.174/

    I do have a PB to do most of the pool and decking but I did all of the retaining walls and excavating. I will probably only have the camera pointing towards the pool for a couple of days and then move it back towards the lake but will start another thread and update pictures at various stages.

    Can't go out now 'cause the new Survivor series just started.

    BTW--when it gets dark you can't see much on the camera.

    The pump plugged up and then broke down right at the start so no pool shell to day

    SATL,

    It looks like a great pool but I think it would have been an ideal location for an infinite edge pool.

    Keep us posted.

    Here are a couple more pictures. The weather yesterday was 80 degrees and in the mid 60's this morning--looks like we might get a couple of days of rain but I hope my PB can keep working on the stone steps. The last photo is of the resort across the lake.

    Awesome. The steps are looking great too. I bet that bobcat driver is very careful. One wrong move and it turns into a submarine. Is that Four Seasons or Tan-Tara?

    That is Four Seasons--I have a GREAT view of the fireworks. The bobcat owner is me most of the time. I purchased it and was responsible for removing the dirt from the pool dig and doing the final grading and landscaping. The steel tracks make it a piece of cake for climbing the hill.

    Got a little more progess. It was almost 80 degrees today (high of 47 tomorrow) and my wife and I took a boat ride and got a photo from the water.

    Nope--My family and I are "full timers". Many of my neighbors are part timers and use their homes mainly in the summer.

    My PB got the steps and stone cap finished on Friday and it looks like he is just about to the point of waiting until spring to install all the pentair products, miracote, and pebbletec--that will be just fine with me as the warranty (and payment) doesn't start until completion and I have LOTS of hardscaping/landscaping to get accomplished by then. My plan is to stucco the concrete retaining walls kind of a neutral color.
