I love trees and removing them unnecessarily is very painful and sad, but I recommend removal. You can always build shade from some sort of awning or even just sail shades, but the roots of the tree are going to give you headaches down the road, not to mention that the leaves and pecans will fall and make a huge mess in the pool. If it's just shade you're after you have far better options than the tree.
yes! I am sorry but I cant imagine the mess and issues this tree is going to cause you just in clean up alone.....

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 muddy gumbo clay and standing water.

That is looking great! I feel a modernized 60’s vibe going on with that color tile. If you weren’t going for that, then it doesn’t remind me of that at all!

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?

I hear brass fixtures are back. We’re stylish again!!

Nice looking pad with all those good valves. Did they give you unions at the pump like I see at the heater?

Loving that tile!!! It is going to look so pretty with water around it and the sun shining!!!

How did they get the gas line wrong? Knowing this I might be able to help someone later when they are having it done.

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.

Wait, what does your yellow caution tape say? Caution Radiation Area?

I want some of that.
It does... hey it kept people out!


looking good man! you're gonna love that tile. once the water is in, it really picks up all the blue tones. so pretty in the sun.
Well we really cant take credit for the tile can we? Dont worry its not all we "stole" from you.
