    Hi, these pavers are not rough as it is actually with at least two different faces.
    One is rough surface for yards or plaza, the other surface is smooth for swimming pool.
    There are plenty this kind of pavers in Australia, including squares, rectangles with multiple colors as well. All are made in Australia. Please contact me if you are interested in them.

    Yes we do. But we specify that the mason grind down any sharp edges facing the pool so that the potential for scraping or abrasion is lessened.

    Thanks so much, we are using old brick for the deck and I was worried about how 'sharp' brick can be, so we were thinking we needed to switch to a concrete coping. This is great news.

    Are the two long beams made of 2x12x18'? thank you
  • PRO

    No, They are 4 x 10's, doubled up. Before using an assumed beam size on a structure this large, make sure that you have a local structural engineer review all spans, connection and member size for conformance to local building codes.

    This project entailed much more than just the arbor structure and pool. There were additional patios, an outdoor kitchen and about 3/4 acre of planting and irrigation. I estimate that the arbor and pool took about 2.5 months and the entire project about 4.

    4 months is not to bad! It looks great. Any way I can see more pics?

    Thank you for your prompt reply, I guess our construction methods are slightly different in the UK. I like the concept of the double arch but I'm not sure how To construct this with the materials available here, guess I should stick to straight lines.

    I believe that many of the construction techniques here in the US orginated in Europe and the UK. Don't feel that you have to sacrifice all esthetics for ease of construction. I suggest you consult with a professional (either a contractor, mason or architect) in your area for advice. The cost of some advice will be a very small percentage of the total cost of the project.

    what are the dimensions of the beam....18' is a long span?
  • PRO
    Kikuchi + Kankel Design Group
    They are 4 x 10 Redwood beams. Redwood has different structural properties than other types of wood, so make sure that you have a structural engineer in your area review all structural spans and connections. The overall weight of the lattice work atop the beams should also be considered. Most woods can make the span, but will warp, twist or sink over time.

    The arbor is wood - #1 cedar. It is painted with a solid Cabot stain to retain the grain of the wood.
  • shelly16
    what is the color of the stain you used? Thank you

    If you are asking about the cost of the patio, arbor and fireplace only, the cost of those items in today's market (This was built about 8 years ago) is most likely around $100,000 - in the San Francisco Bay Area Peninsula. Please keep in mind that construction costs in the SF Bay Area can be more than double the cost to build in other parts of the country. Not knowing where you are located, it might be best to contact a local contractor or landscape architect for some conceptual pricing before commencing your project.

    The pool line tile is called Monterey and is manufactured by McIntyre Tile Co in Healdsburg, CA. Make sure you order in advance as they usually do not stock their tiles.

    No, it does not. It is designed to the specifications of a Rumford fireplace, which has a larger opening for better heat projection.

    The pool plaster is a medium grey color. The grey along with the natural hue given by water makes it appear as a blue-grey. A great color for reflectivity and the illusion of a deeper pool.

    This pool was built about 9 years ago and cost about $85,000 for just the pool, spa and pool cover, not including the brick patio, arbor and surrounding improvements. Many factors can influence the cost of a pool, such as ease of access for large digging equipment, availability of sufficient gas and electrical supply, soil and ground water conditions, the quality of the pool cleaning and heating equipment and the area in which you are building. In today's economy, I would estimate that this pool would cost 10-15% more. But keep in mind that this pool was built in the San Francisco Bay Area, known for being one of the highest cost of construction areas in the nation.

    Beautifully done. The brick patio really compliments the pergola. I love the plantings. Some nice cushions would give it a warm look.

BrickThe bricks pictured here are full-dimensioned bricks set on a concrete base for permanent stability.Cost: $7 to $9 per square foot installedPros: Individual bricks can be replaced if they become cracked or damagedLong lasting and durableCons:Needs to be resealed after power washing and other maintenanceCan feel hot on feet

Rachel Grace added this to Renovation Detail: 4 Popular Brick Patterns for PatiosJun 12, 2012

A Jack-on-Jack pattern is carried throughout this entire pool and seating area. Setting bricks in such a fashion can help create an illusion or feeling of a larger space then what actually exists. It is interesting how this stacked bond pattern is installed directly to the pool edge with no border.
