Love to see the enjoyment of people's faces during a pool build. For most people, it is a lifelong dream to have their very own pool in their backyard....and now it is pure joy to make that dream a reality!A few more changes made today - we extended the shallow end by 6’ to account for the grade required to go from 4’6” to 8’ - the crew onsite did some additional shaping to help it flow and match the pool shape on both ends. Next is stub plumbing and rebar! The dark pic is my husband and his best friend checking out the deep end tonight with a beer and to show scale.
Oh I intend to be involved with as much of that tile picking process as possible. Hubby is also a former graphic designer, so has quite an opinion on the look of things as well. And for the grout, likely picking medium gray after talking w/ the PB - it will almost look like the grout and plaster are the same color from what he was showing us.Love, love, love you pics!!!!! All so pretty!
What color of grout will you use for smaller tiles? I am thinking something medium dark. NOT white.
Now I want you to keep an eye out when that tile shows up. Especially the bigger tile. There is going to be quite a bit of variation in the color and "design" on each tile. I would open up the crate and go through them. Pick out the really pretty ones to put on the sight line part of the pool aka where your eyes fall when you walk out to the pool. Put aside the ugly ones. Hide them so there is no way they can be used hehe. Me? I would lay them out the way I wanted them put up on the wall. Yeah I do have control issues but it makes me happy so it is all good! One build the tilers put all of the light tiles together and all of the dark tiles together. It looks awful The PB came by to look and agreed so had them removed and replaced but it care had been used in the first place they would not have had to do that gurrrrrrrr
Look into Lorex. You'll have your own DVR and it can be a wired or wireless type of system even with remote capabilities. Cost is roughly the same for 4 rings but is infinitely better IMHO as there are no monthly fees to store your logs.we were thinking about adding an outdoor camera system as part of future security/liability stuff but also to time-lapse video of our build
