    Build in progress

    We live in the mountains. Unfortunately, it's not flat so we have a little bit more work and a lot of time. It is supposedly going to be completed some time this month. Maybe June 20? I'll believe it when I see it.

    Snow covered:



    No snow - a lot of landscaping is going to be going Bye Bye:



    Before the pool but in progress of constructing the deck:




    Digging (rain is slowing progress down):






    Framing :




    Gravel:





    Rebar:




    To be continued....

    Thanks. We look secluded in the back but we are central to everything.

    Looks great!!! I have one question on the back side of the pool is it going to be sticking up out of the ground or are they going to backfill? Sorry to ask but it looks like its out of the ground 4 ft in the pics.

    They still have to level the ground around the pool/pond, and they're adding a retaining wall in the back. We live in the mountains and that's why this pool is running well over $100k.

    Rain has slowed down any progress.

    Retaining wall and minor advancements.
