We started our pool on 11/24/2020. It's a 32x16 rectangle. The stairs are 8x6. We are doing a concrete decking with acrylic. No bird cage, no spa, no heater. Here is what we do have:
We are currently waiting for the decking to be done. Here is the progress so far.

And then it rained and the deep end collapsed!

It was finally fixed but took forever due to constant rains. It was a 3 week delay.

And now we are waiting on the decking. It's been three weeks since the tile was finished. Hopefully one day soon we get our decking done.

What a fabulous layout for that pool, and that site! I love really useful layout like that, you've done well! Don't fret, I bet you'll be done before swim season. :party:

Thanks Maddie! We really wanted the lay out to match the style of the house and give us the most space to have a pool and some sitting areas. That was the goal, be done in time for swim season. Looks like we will make that goal. PB called and said we should have our decking started tomorrow. Once they get the framing in I have to call the pest control company so they can spray before decking can be poured. So with any luck end of this week we will have a deck poured. Of course, I have no idea what is involved or how long it takes.

Looks great! The TruClear has a lot of reports of unreliability and typically they only last 2-3 seasons at best. But you could get longer out of it. I didn't see any automation are you getting any? Filter looks a bit undersized but doesn't look like a lot of trees so you are probably ok.

Thank you! We are excited. The PB only uses Jandy. We will see how it goes. Hopefully we get more than 3 seasons! No real automation. We are getting iAquaLink so we can control some stuff like the lights. We don’t have anything else to automate. We have no hot tub, no water features, no heater. There are no trees at all. The only trees are across the pond.

Thank you Kelly! We love it. We are going with a sand mini pebble interior finish so it should tie everything together nicely.

Me too! They came out and cleaned up the pool yesterday and I'm being told they should be out tomorrow or Thursday to do the finishing. Electrician is supposed to show up tomorrow as well so it should be a busy but exciting day!UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_2f4d.jpgUNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_2f52.jpgUNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_2f51.jpgUNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_2f56.jpg
