Thanks kim. Where do you mean? If you notice, i have a covered ramada in my cooking area. Are you talking about my fireplace and overn area? I will be leaving that open and may add a pergola type later.

NICE! I love the outdoor cooking area! Will you have some kind of shade over it?

Yeah I was talking about the fireplace/oven area............I am hoping there will be seating there for s'mores on at night time! That will be an awesome place to have the fire going and friends all around!

So you have a day time place and a night time place! NICE!

Waldo,

Do you have a picture of the pool with water in it? I'm curious to see what your pebble looks like in the finished product. Also, what drew you to pebble as opposed to some of the other products out there. The color you chose is awesome. I'd like to do something similar (if not identical) in my upcoming build.

Thanks,
Nate

Im not even sure. But it is a good size. My recommendation is to make sure you go with pre plumbed jets over the standard fitting

I'm curious what the size of your spa is?

posted them just now and they look amazing. Mine was a custom pebble and glass mix with abalone. the abalone shines bright in the daytime. Color is to die for. Will try to take day time pics.

Great pool!! One question, on the daylight picture, the two laminar jets on the right seem to hold their "rod" shape all the way over the arc, while the two on the left don't. Different jets or was there a breeze?

Yes, the ones on the back are regular deck jets. The ones on the front are laminas. :)

They cost over $750 each so two was good enough. Plus my nephews will love the splash from them. :)

Also started my sound system in ramada. Best solution is a car stereo. Recievers are not made to withstand the elements. The car stereo on the other hand can handle plenty of heat and with a marine cover, it is splash proof. LOL. Plus you get CD, Bluetooth, Radio, hands free calling, etc. :) Wired it to run off power outlet and can handle my expensive speaker craft speakrers inside the ramada and the the ones facing the pool for a total of four speakers.

Already finished this and will take pics of finished project. I am now ready to bring out my outdoor refrigerator and finish the ramada completely.
