Here is the design my wife and I really liked and ultimately went with.
June 26th: They got the big rig back here to start churning up the grass.... The bobcat they had could not easily go through my backyard so they needed to quit for the day and come back.
June 30th: Excavation crew is back and boom! I have a hole in my ground.
July 4th: Crazy lightning storms in the morning and a little bit of rain happened. Piece of wall crumbled in.
July 5th: Chemical Injection/Steel scheduled to tomorrow, July 6th. Then inspection, then Gunite on Thursday or Friday.
My wife and I are so excited... the Spa and Grotto are HUGE! We wanted it to feel like a cave and I really think they will do a great job. The grading on the pool look to be perfect so far. It quickly goes from 3.5 to 5 then slowly to 4.
