it is coming together really well thanks bradster. Hows your place going?
Pool is booked to get dropped in next week. Im so nervous about this particular task so I will be happy once completed.
On that note does anyone have any temporary pool fencing that they dont need anymore?
The issue with the bench is that two of the adjoining slabs are actually a different thickness and it stood out like the proverbial. The top join is level and very well done, the issue has been the side on view looking at the stone and the underneath.
Its so much better mow and one of those "if i didnt know it in the first place i probably wouldn't notice" but unfortunately i know its there and so look closely.
See what DW says.

Great news about the pool, I couldn't wait until that bit was over too.
Couldn't notice anything with the bench, but I completely know what you mean about you knowing it is there. We have a similar problem at the moment where our bench meets standards but the finish is not what we expected.

So as I said I had been stressing over this pool. Well not a good news story today with the relisation that the wrong size and rating of piping has been installed through my retaining wall to run the pool water through.
Disappointing in the respect that it was done so it looked all tidy with minimal pipes on the wall, however relatively easily fixed by coring through upper blocks and running pipes down exterior of wall. Not visually what i wanted but not out of control either. More than likely we will be adding a rainwater tank in the area so it's going to have piping and pumps everywhere anyways.
The dig went very well, with the pool clear of the wall and the predig rock breaking at initial earthworks stage paying off.
Should drop in Thursday morning, but wind will be an issue.
Very happy with how it turned out.
Oh and PS, dearest wife is happy with Benchtops.

Sorry to hear about the issues with the pipes. Looking forward to seeing the pool go in, looks like it is going to be a great size...
The stone looks really good, really like where you have used it- makes a great feature

Given the stress that has gone into this pool over the last year its a relief to see it sitting there full of water.
Pencil compaction tomorrow and then the sub paving concrete border.
The border will be a drop edge travertine paver with liquid limestone and decking surrounds.
Liquid Limestone finish
pool at the end of today

Those jobs will probably be done in April.
I need to do some prelay of underground power, blank conduits and drainage before LL goes down and I still need handover
Im hoping to have a massive next weekend and get a heap of underground stuff sorted and fingers crossed get some lawn in to try and keep the sand remotely under control.
