Sporadic updates on the renovations of my 1924 Spanish colonial revival house in Coconut Grove, Florida. One less "mcmansion" in the Grove.

A picture is worth a thousand words
This is the photo my contractor sent me.
I was discussing pool ideas with the contractor. . so he sent me the above photo of what he thought I might have in mind--- thankfully I had houzz.com to help me find exactly what I have been trying to describe. A picture is always worth a thousand words..... I found two examples (see below) of classic Mediterranean pool & landscape designs that I think we can scale to fit within our budget. I love the traditional look of stone and grass integrated to seamlessly connect the house to the pool area
