It is amazing how some of that stuff is of no difference to them later, but has a big price tag at the bargaining table before signing. Got a few upgrades that way myself. But, then, when it comes to the sub and the decking, they wanted to fret back and forth over a few extra feet of travertine that was mis-measured. Beats me!
It’s definitely true. We even looked at this specific upgrade and decided against it because of having to not only pay for the larger sheer but also pay to upgrade the pump.

I’d love to know why both were upgraded at no charge now but we’ll just be quiet and grateful. Haha.

Love your design! Looks similar to ours! We went with the raised spa and added a table in the bench area. Good luck with your build! We are on month 11 since signing, hopefully done in the next 6 weeks!

Wow. That is incredibly similar! We debated a table in a similar position to yours as well. Haha

I’m hoping our build is less than a year. According to our PB we are looking at 6-8 months but we’ll see.

Where in Florida are you? Do you have a build thread here by chance?

We are in Lutz/Tampa area. We were quoted 8-9 months, but they came back and asked for more money due to rising costs, did nothing for a month, and then finally started completing things slowly over the last few weeks. No thread, I’ve asked a few questions here or there.

Don't skimp on sleeves for umbrellas. Put a couple around the pool where you know you will have patio furniture, etc. They are free (just a hole in the concrete - from my builder) and so much better than dealing with umbrella stands. Check out mine for a reference of what we did in that regard.
