gk,
Thanks. We've had one fairly good sized party for my son's bday -- 50-60 people. It was so fun w/ the huge bar. I can't wait until the next one when the pool is finished and nice to look at.

The tile is from NPT, Silverstone Ocean. I'm really pleased w/ the look of it.

porkchopp,

Thanks. It's El Dorado Stone, Rustic Ledge. The color is cascade. there's a link below for you. I wasn't sure how the stacked stone was going to look next to the rock face of the spa but actually really like the way it turned out.

I just responded to your other thread and figured I would search to see if you had progress pics. It looks great!! The rock waterfall off the spa is a neat idea. I don't think I've seen that before. The grotto looks cool! Can you post some close-ups of your bar? It looks interesting.

Houseful,

Here are some close-ups of the bar.

This is before our pergola was put up. You can see there's still some work to be done on it:


Here's a shot from above from the day they put up the pergola:

And here are some from this morning:



We love it. My youngest was out there eating breakfast this morning and was so proud of himself.
