coping - I was talking with a potential pool builder today about putting in a vinyl pool and told him I loved how this pool has coping with squared corners (rather than rounded corners that are needed in vinyl pool due to the liner). He wasn't sure how the coping would have been done. Do you know how the installer did that? It makes the pool look like gunite in my opinion.

SchappacherWhite Architecture D.P.C.
The liner is tucked into a reveal below the square edge of the coping and has an insert to hold it in place.

Yes, the stairs run the full length of the pool, qty 3.
The lower section is one depth about 5', but varies with water level. Pool custom designed by SchappacherWhite Architecture. If you have any additional questions feel free to ask.

The pool is 14' x 36' there is info on the liner in past questions.
The pool house is about 450 sq ft., basically a square in plan.

When using saw cut tiles are there issues with sharpness or are they sanded?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
SchappacherWhite Architecture D.P.C.
The edge shoule be eased (sanded), so not a sharp edge. I prefer this detail over a bullnose. We use 2' x 2' so that the stainers are within the tiled area. There are stone cutouts for access.

Are the bluestone coping tiles saw cut? And how far over the edge of the pool do they overlap?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
SchappacherWhite Architecture D.P.C.
Yes, they are saw cut, all edges are. As far as the overhang, that would be determined by what type of pool you are doing.

Thank you so much. Since my renovation, my pool is 18x42 because we removed the old, fiberglass steps and brought it out further with interior stadium seat type steps. They came out beautiful. The second step is a ledge that is 24". Along the length of one side of the pool is a raised garden bed which will have a stone retaining wall. Between that and the pools water edge is 4ft. On the opposite length side ether is about 12ft to the fence between myself and my neighbor, total sun side of pool) pool lies parallel in my backyard, with the deep end of course being furthest away from my house. Three is a "courtyard" type space right of the house that is enclosed with very tall shrubs that create total privacy. We haven't paved that yet and don't know what to put there, our hire to design (gardens vs patio together). Once out of that area, there is lawn of about 16ft to the pools edge where the new pool steps are, (some sun/shade). I'm just not sure how much patio I should do. I love the look of this, its very classic. Any suggestions would be very appreciated. Thank you so much!

Hi, It depends on zoning setbacks, sun orientation, do you want sun or shade, how much seating is required, budget, etc. Would be best to speak with a local designer that can assist you.

Becky Harris added this to Pools: One Last Look Before Summer's End
I've never understood why people on islands or better yet, with oceanfront property have pools, but this lovely one on Shelter Island might just change my mind.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Complete Your Landscape with a Backyard Cottage
I love pool houses that have a style that reminds me of simple barn outbuildings. It's like a building that was always there called out to the homeowner that this is the perfect spot for a pool. More: 14 Picture-Perfect Playhouses Prefab Sheds: 7 Instant Backyard Getaways Browse readymade sheds
