We're in Linden......near Front Royal.
Yeah, I know it. We have been considering moving up there (little further north) for a few years but can't quite break away.

It sure is a beautiful part of this earth.

Looks great, and fantastic view! We did something similar with our tanning ledge, it's surrounded on 3 sides as well. Hope you get finished soon so you can get some relief from this heat. We're right there with you - getting our gunite today, western Loudoun county... :)

Thanks Matt. We have a lot of natural stone up there (stone walls, chimney) and we also have to put in a small stone retaining wall. We went with the stone coping to try to make it all tie in together. Hopefully the finished product will work!

Everything beautiful :!: :!: You are going to be really happy with the large shallow end. Many of us have too little shallow end area. Yours looks to be a perfect combination of shallow and deep. The swimout/loveseat is great. Stone coping is beautiful. You are also going to be really pleased to have the trees far enough away from the pool. Makes life easier. Matt commented on you pumping station. My first thought was that surely looks neat. Congrats. Did you design the pool? I really like the shape as it has the character of the rolling hills. Looks like it won't be too long before you will be enjoying your gorgeous "resort".
