The Pool, finished!
If you wondered why those poles haven’t been trimmed back and why we used a ridiculous amount of concrete. Stage 2 will be a deck around the pool with a balustrade running between those poles. The pool fence will no longer be visual. We’re hoping to start Stage 2 in Winter 2016.
We’ve chosen for a neutral (coral sand) liner, an unconventional choice. We’ve decided that the traditional “resort blue” would look out of sorts in our natural setting. This lighter colour enables the water to take on the colour of its surroundings. With the choice for a saltwater pool, we make don’t have to use chemicals to keep the water in good quality, just bags of sea salt, lots of them.
Now we know all the connections hold, we can start closing the trench.
Part of Stage 2 will be taking out the pool side balustrade. It will need two steps down to pool level, those steps will also hold the pool cover. With plenty of space for a new pool gate.
