Well it was a good two month wait between signing the contract and getting HOA stuff done and then meeting with superintendent. Dig started on the 20th of July and things have progressed nicely since then. Plumbing wrapped up yesterday. We are going on vacation all next week so hoping the gunite is completed as a nice welcome home present.8C5B72B1-9F4E-4421-A372-68AB270A829A.jpeg

Made some modifications to the selections. No more deco tile, just using the ledge stone on pillars and raised wall. Changed the coping to something a little lighter versus the ivory.

Decided to contract out the patio coating. The product is called Kool Stone which is like a stamped finish, but has the same reflective and cooling properties as the textured stuff. We haven’t picked out the colors yet, but the style is below.

Nice color choices! Very similar to our selections, we also went with Blue Slate on the Pebble Sheen! Your build is looking good.

Pool is moving along now. Plumber came out to hook up the equipment which was nice to get out of the garage. Then the decking guys came to set the forms and poured on 9/7. You can see we had them add a step off the landing from the existing patio. I will cut the railing out on that section and then use that railing to make a gate to close of the patio as we have a two year old. Not a big fan of how pool fences look, but at least this will provide an alternative and some level of security. We also have the Kool Kote guys coming out to do the Koolstone overlay on the front patio today, and then will get us on the schedule for the rear patio and decking now that it is done.

Any concerns I should bring up with the equipment plumbing? Seems alright to me, but definitely a novice on pool plumbing.

PB said the clean up will start next week which is awesome as I get to start my projects which includes graveling the side yard and along the pool as I don't want grass there, fixing the sprinkler system, building the fireplace, getting the storage shed done and finally sodding the yard.

Unfortunately PB did say the electrician and plaster are delayed, but I don't really mind as long as things get cleaned up so I can start restoring everything. Its nice having the decking done and not walking on mud and dirt.

The coating guys came out to do the front courtyard starting Friday of last week. This is what will eventually go on the pool decking and rear patio. We love how it turned out. Those guys were real artists.

With the help of my dad and a neighbor, we poured the pad for the fireplace. I’m not as good as the decking guys, but it will work for what I need it for.

Beautiful! We're in Austin and thinking of doing something similar. Willing to share who you used?
