Well, the travertine quote is for 2.2k sq feet.

How much for a bluestone patio? This is why I decided to buy a condo, no more projects.

That's not bad at all per square foot.

Is it all one level?

Yes, it's all one level. It starts at the house/patio doors and spreads out from there, including surrounding the pool and spa. The pool has a "monument wall" (new term for me) behind the pool (remember, we face a golf course) and two 36" scuppers that sheet water down. If everything comes together it should be a cool project.

^You live in the Southwest, right?  I would think a pool would get a lot of use.

Speaking of pools in a hot climate, does anybody have experience with a decking material that will stay cool in direct sunlight? Bluestone looks nice but apparently gets blazing hot, and in south Florida with small children using the pool, I'd like to avoid that. My wife likes travertine, and so do I, but I'm interested in alternatives.

Staying cool is a property of travertine which was part of the decision for us.

When I first heard of wood-look tile, I didn't like the idea.  But seeing them at tile stores, I like them, especially for outdoor use.  Took this pic of a display with a pic of it used as a pool deck.  

 

 

 

The tile looked better irl than in the pic, and it had a texture that seemed like it wouldn't be slippery when wet. If I ever get to move back to somewhere warm, I'd consider it for a pool deck.

Have seen those installed and they can look pretty nice.

Just reading code requirements for fences. ffffuuuu.gif

Fence will not meet code. We have wrought iron and there's 48" between horizontal members and code requires 60". I bet when this house was built several years ago that fence met code as many neighbors have pools with the exact same fence. This could be yet another thing that kills the project. We need to sell and just rent an apartment.
