The story of one small pool
I first saw it 2 years ago. We met and parted for another year. In November 2012, 11 months ago, I started the project. In a box the size kW.m. I had to write the whole complex. On the second floor turned 13 hotel rooms, a kitchen with a mini-cafe. On the first pool, dressing rooms, a Hammam, sauna, bowling, billiard room, barbershop, honey.the Cabinet and various auxiliary facilities.Pool disturbed me the most, until recently, did not know how to approach him. No joke: 8 x 25 metres, 340 cubic meters of water. Not every day you come across such problems. Usually with large rectangular swimming pools cost just: plain stone tiles or mosaics, high mosaic mix, spread on the bottom of the stripe-phunktastike denoting the tracks, yeah, okay. Going down to the countryside. This approach is understandable: at a large square basin, with collected water, you will not see virtually nothing on the bottom, standing next to the pool. In my case, around the pool, on the second floor, the gallery rooms are located. It is fully visible from the second floor from any point of the gallery, and the stripes on the bottom here obviously would not be enough. Solid pool resembled a giant trough.Now, the design of the pool I kept putting it off until later. Construction and decoration went on as usual. By mid-August the pool with the gallery of the second floor looked like this......and there were no signs. Suddenly the owner of the complex said that they wanted to birthday, 20 September, take a dip in the pool. And he's not joking and generally terrible in anger. I'm immune, and the other participants of the action were on the ears: bassanini, plasterers, sellers of mosaic tilers and superintendent. The drawing on the bottom of the bowl had to come up with two days to chronically poor nevirapine foreman was able to sleep. Another week spent on the coordination of the order.Here are the friezes will go around the perimeter, just below the rim, on the waterline In the pool I used a mosaic of thirty shades. Panels with octopus, of 170 square meters and 92 meters frieze manually typed a few people a month. Birthday host is already gone, and bassanini just yesterday finished testing. Hydraulic testing is a procedure during which verifies the serviceability of the equipment, the strength of the bowl, etc. the Bowl needs a few days to stand filled to the brim, so all the errors manifested before laying tile. Here's what filled the pool:the Inner surface of the pool until it was dark gray, and the water is cloudy. Hence the mirror effect. By the way, how many floors are in the photo? :) Today launched. The days are finally starting mosaic!
