If anyone would like to see all the pictures of the entire process send me a DM with your email and I'll send them to you. There is I think 25 or so shots so way too many to post here.
That brings back memories of when Dad owned a couple of Gunite rigs and contracted for Pasco and National pool companies,I had the misfortune to be a member of one of the Gunite crews for about a year, had to be the hottest,noisiest,dirtiest,hardest job i ever had, hats off to those guys thats one hell of a hard job..
PS. a pool the size shown? we'd usually do 3 of em in a day if it was a new construction site and they were all side by side.

Having a golden ourselves, I can attest to the amount of hair that they can loose after a short swim. It's mind boggling.

You are really nice to build him an outside bath tub! Have you taken him out on your boat yet?

I know this is personal but can you give me a ballpark what this is costing you? Last pool I put was over $30K but that included solar heat & salt water thing but no brid cage and in a different state

I like the deck color. What is it called. Looks really nice. Superior Pools install mine as well back in 2007. Great bunch of people!

It's called soft apricot. I too think it really blends nicely with the tile. If you need the color number let me know, he left us some paint so I have the numbers. I just LOVED all the choices we had. I hear some companies give you only a choice of three deck colors.

Every single person that was here, and there were a LOT of them was so nice and helpful, hard working and just really did their job(s). What really amazed me was during the entire construction not one harsh word between workers, I can't say enough good about Superior. Work was coordinated just perfectly.

They will take care of the pool for the next three weeks getting everything balanced correctly.

The sod will go down towards the end of the week, excited about that and not having any more SMUD (sand/mud).
