Ok forms is all set as of last week. Also now because of difference in elevation there will be a step up on each side of the pool. (Also added cost).

Anyone have a step up on each side of their pool? If so, do you also have baby gates? Wondering how that will look.

Pool form survey was done today, hopefully we can get results tomorrow/Wednesday and move to next step by end of week/early next week.

Also had to take down the shed to make room for the pool equipment as putting it under the kitchen window was a no go and to the left of it would have limited adding additional equipment(heater) in the future.

Had to take the shed down to have better placement of pool equipment, other it would have been to close to the pool. We also looking at having the A/C unit moved. Likely going to put the pool actually behind/next to where the shed was, but we weren’t using the shed for much and I am thinking of extending patio space as well.

Found out our roof has hail damage. So after getting that replaced in the next couple months I am thinking of installing a solar pool heater myself. Anyone done this? I assume the hardest part is the plumbing which would consist of a couple two way valves and a couple check valves besides the runs from the pump.

From that storm yesterday? It was a rough one up my way. We lost half a pecan tree. Thankfully it fell away from the house.
No, my area of florida got hit with a hail storm back on March 27th. Just finally got a roofing company out here to take a look just to be sure.

SWEET! Make sure the use "chairs" under the steel to keep it from touching the floor or walls. Lifting it as they shoot it does NOT count!!!

My guess is the pieces of broken cement are their version of chairs. In other news the rebar and such passed inspection. My guess is we'll be shooting cement this coming week!

And we have a pool (and a dispute). Original drawing used to sell is the pool had sunshelf dimensions at 7 feet long by 5 feet wide. Plans we signed and that were distributed had dimensions of the pool only. We kept questioining the dig crew and foreman that the sunshelf area looked small. They insisted time after time that it would be shot much bigger. We had always said we wanted to fit two lounge chairs and the umbrella. We’ll be lucky if one lounge chair fits on there. Already reached out to one of the owners and we’ll be discussing this tomorrow. Other than that it looks great!99357

yeah that does look small. Go out and measure it. Print out that pic that shows it all and write the dimensions on it. On your first page you have a hand drawn pool with your dimensions on it. I would go out and measure the whole pool and see how close everything else it. Share what you find with your PB.

That sun shelf can be fixed! Don't let them tell you otherwise! We can tell you what they should do so you can keep an eye on them.
