Absolutely gorgeous, I love your pool, the lighting is perfect and your bar looks great, very pretty.

RE: Jeff and Sharon's Pool

You have an absolutely beautiful pool!

Can you share the story behind the dinosaur? (There has got to be a story...)

RE: Jeff and Sharon's Pool

BTW I just watched your time-lapsed videos and those are SO COOL!

RE: Jeff and Sharon's Pool


There is a shop near our house that makes dinosaurs, bears, geckos, etc. of all shapes and sizes. My wife purchased "Rap" for my birthday and he's been a member of the family ever since.

The link below is to the place that makes them.

RE: Jeff and Sharon's Pool

Your pool has always inspired me. It is a wonderful creation. I am glad to see you post again. I think many people would agree that your advice has helped so many.


RE: Jeff and Sharon's Pool

Jeff, Your pool is as beautiful as I remember!! Glad to see you back again.

BTW, my sister and I just drove part of route 66 from Okl City to Holbrook, Az. Stirred up Quite a few memories. So sorry that we will not drive to Cal. We stopped in Phoenix to stay with my neice's children for a week. Wish we could see the dinosaurs.

RE: Jeff and Sharon's Pool

Thanks Rob and Gayle for the warm welcome back.


RE: Jeff and Sharon's Pool

Bump... My favorite to look at.

RE: Jeff and Sharon's Pool

Bump!!! Also my favorite

RE: Jeff and Sharon's Pool

Proof positive that you don't have to have the biggest yard or the biggest pool to get the biggest punch.

Note to all readers,
When contemplating your backyard improvements think hard about future improvements. There will never be a time like right now to step up to the plate and hit a home run like this. It'll never be cheap, but it'll be money very well spent.

See Ya,

RE: Jeff and Sharon's Pool

Also, our Fireplace is now famous. It has been included in a new book called "Fire Outdoors" by Tina Skinner & Melissa Cardona. Hundreds of great outdoor fireplaces.

Here are a couple of the new photos.

RE: Jeff and Sharon's Pool

Bump... Almost fell off.

RE: Jeff and Sharon's Pool

What an absolutely beautiful environment you've created..........Really nice. I'm glad you have so many photos available. They gave me some great ideas. I love the lighting in the night shots.

RE: Jeff and Sharon's Pool

Truly lovely pool but wouldn't enjoy my neighbors 5 feet from my back yard. I'd feel like they were watching me!
