Not a big fan of the rectangular shape of the pool, but you certainly helped soften it with the shapes in the decking, etc.

All in all, nice job!

This pool is an old fox pool about 25+ years old. Just gave it a face lift.

Great designs, I love the finished look of concrete but wouldn't dare try that up here! Are your drains connected, and to where did you lead them?

Looks amazing. I would LOVE to have that in my backyard. Very nice work.

zedosix, why wouldn't you try it up there? I gets just as cold here as it does there? The drains are connected and go to daylight, but I didn't do it, the landscaper did.
This job was done for a Kiewitt guy that is a civil engineer that specializes in concrete. If done right, anything can be done in concrete! I'll take on any challenge.

I guess the biggest problem in our area is not just frost but a heavy clay subsoil. If the drainage is not properly attended to that concrete slab will move and crack the first year. I guess I'm just afraid to have to go back in and cango the whole bloody thing apart. Brick is just safer in my opinion.

We have clay here also. I pour on top of 2-4 inches of compacted recycled concrete, have #4 rebar 2' on center each way, and have proper expansion and control joints. Last year I had pool decks heave an inch and a half and no cracking.

8 pours, there is colored broomed, seamless stamped, and exposed aggregate. used brickform formliners for the steps. The coping has a different formliner for the face.
