The pool tile was something we got from our individual pool contractor. 1x1 mosaics. Yes, there is tile on top of the wall in between the steps.

Thank you for your response. I think recessed screens are a good idea for some of the transitional months. We live in Gainesville, FL and our temps are fantastic at the moment, but a mosquito will always find a way in during the evenings if the doors are open. After a hard freeze, they'll disappear until spring. The don't call it the Swamp for nothing, but we're planning to build in St Pete and I hope proximity to the Gulf will improve the insect issue. Thanks again. Nice work.

I went to school in Gainesville. I totally agree. St. Pete will be nice. Retractable screens will impact design but can be a seamless element once figured out. Best of luck. Let me know I can help. My email michelle@balfoort.co

It is poured in place concrete by a local contractor. The sea shells are added at the last minute and then finished smooth. They came back next day and pressure washed surface to expose shell aggregate.

Yes, photo exaggerates the length. There is also a swim shelf at other end. It's not a huge pool all said and done but scale works for us and within context.

Below the steps there is a diving wall between the spa and pool. Water just barely flows thru. To reduce the time it takes to heat the spa in the winter, we let the water level fall low so that no water "escapes" to the pool.

No question, love the pool! How perfect! Well done. - Great pool!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This pool in Florida is logically placed in the courtyard of a U-shape plan. This makes the pool the focus of the outdoor space, but also an impediment. The stepping stones deal with the latter.
