Almost done!

Mitchell worked his butt off the last two days and got the pool shaped, drains installed and Vermiculite finished. Now we can install the liner and start filling the pool!

We have the pump pad, electrical, retaining wall and concrete to finish. Almost there....

Piping done

Piping is completed on the pool and backfilling has started. Tomorrow
they will pour pump pad and finish backfilling and hopefully getting
the rest of the dirt hauled away.

Designing a big pergola for the back of the house for some shade. I'll
try and post a pic of the design tomorrow.

More progress today

It was the point of no return the last few days on the pool. They
showed up today (a Saturday) and installed the coping and got the
electrical bonding completed for the next step.

We finalized locations for the ladder, pump and eelectrical wires. We
are planning on building two 10' square pergolas down at the far end
of the pool. We will be installing ceiling fans in them and one will
be set up for a tv. I may just move into my backyard shortly!
