Looks awesome, they're really doing a great job.
You did it right!The original retaining wall was a non permitted wall the builder did before I bought the house. Since it was non permitted I couldn’t add on to it to create the needed height for a pool requirement. It was either tear it out and build new or just get the easement encroachment to build new in front of it. Trust me it was a major hurdle to get it done. But I’m happy I went through the tough route to get all the approvals and permits.
I am almost ready to call for Final Inspection on my 90 LF of 8’ retaining wall. What helped was I pulled my own permit, ordered all the rebar and custom block thru Hub and had it ready to go. I still had issues getting return calls and prices. Including the block guy the OP suggested on this thread. I finally got lucky that the block guy I used had another project get put on hold and he jumped on mine. But yes, very high demand for block wall guys.Demand is very high for block walls in havasu. Delayed our new home build 3 months waiting for the guy to show up. Everyday we were told he was showing up the following week.
I like how you just did it yourself. Wish I had the time to do the same.
Brian at Desert Storm had included this in his bid. I assume it’s either his guys or subcontractors. After looking at it in detail today I really like it and it transformed the back yard.looks awesome if you don't mind me asking who's doing the decking I'm getting tired of repairing the cool deck that I have down.
How high is your table top going to sit above the water line ?Landscaping is in. The 2nd pic is just a light shading of gravel behind the Rv garage. In a couple months that’s where the outdoor kitchen is going. It’s a fairly good size at 16’ wide and 40’ long. I’m thinking grill, sink, bar with seating facing the pool, misters...

We ran it a couple weeks ago and it brought the temp up from 55 to 73. Now the outside temp overnight was 38 so it did well enough to make it swimable. I’m very happy with it. I’m looking forward to running the chiller this summer.That looks bitchen! How good does the heat pump work?
Looks great. Ours got water this week and I’m gonna start up a thread this weekend. We ended up doing pebble also with a lighter base and are very happy with it.
How much did the Chiller set you back? I’m having Brian build us a pool this spring and I didn’t think about having that.We ran it a couple weeks ago and it brought the temp up from 55 to 73. Now the outside temp overnight was 38 so it did well enough to make it swimable. I’m very happy with it. I’m looking forward to running the chiller this summer.
