    David and Kristy's Pool Build

    We finally got a dig date!!! They came this morning and dug all day long!! What a sight!! My five year old was in awe! We had previously had in our contract a "sport" pool but we changed our mind. We are so glad we did. I love to take pictures so I hope you don't mind.

    Before shots:



    View from house:

    Bringing the equipment up our VERY steep driveway!

    Outline of pool

    1st scoop!


    We unearthed TONS of old cable. The pb joked that he was not going to let the workers know they were dead. LOL

    Forms

    It is starting to look like a pool!



    Our daughter and her grandad. SHe is not excited AT ALL


    Monday should be plumbing!!

    Hmm.....looking at the presence of the red soil, the types of decidious trees, the sparse nature of the grass, the angle of the roof slope, the type of shingles used, the fence style, the playground equipment, and the adorable child................

    I deduce that you live in GEORGIA!!!

    Anemone, you got it! I thought the red clay was a dead giveaway but I guess a little research goes a long way, too!

    We decided to go with 3 1/2 ft - 7 ft.

    Due to the red clay, I was going to guess Alabama, but then I noticed no one was wearing a houndstooth hat or a t-shirt that read "In Saban We Trust"...

    Re: David and Kristy's Pool Build

    Day 2 of our build. The plumbing equip was supposed to be here Friday and did not arrive so the guys had to wait around until the stuff was delivered at lunch time today. Some of them lounged on my daughter's slide and then moved to my driveway. It was quite a funny sight. I think some of them took a little nap.

    Here is what they did today.










    More tomorrow!!

    Kristi, what the heck was all of that old cable from that you dug up?? And if it was copper, did you sell it??

    Re: David and Kristy's Pool Build

    Funny.....all that cable was the old service (electrical) line that ran across the backyard. Not sure where all of it was buried, but it's more cable than was orginally needed. Unfortunately, not copper. But it will be on Craigslist soon!

    Re: David and Kristy's Pool Build

    Since my last pics we had the bonding grid, layout of the decking and now tile and coping. We also found a large "jump rock" that we are going to use instead of a diving board. I forgot to get a pic of it. The rock coping is a little lighter than we expected. I think it is just dust, though, and it should be more brown once we get another good rain. We are supposed to get electrical tomorrow and then the inspection. Then we should have decking poured and then the pebble tec!

    Progress is looking good. I didn;t get to see my Gunite being "shot" but they do it so quickly.

    I like the stepped bench you have. Now why didn't I think of that?

    Hey, neighbor~!

    Wish I had some new pics. We got delayed on the electrical and the inspection. We hope to have the concrete poured in the morning. Maybe I will have some new pics tomorrow!
