Footers have been poured and another shot of the equipment pad a little further along. Blue arrows are pointing to the fascia on the house that electricians bent up while running conduit. They will be replacing it.

Should be seeing the paver crew soon!

Pictures are not the greatest, but here are some shots of the pavers. They look awesome in person!
Screen enclosure is supposed to be going up later this week.

Also just ordered my TF-100 test kit and SpeedStir!

Screen started yesterday.

I was just told Pebble is scheduled 4 days before we go out of town for 2 weeks. I'm a little worried as I planned on being here to brush to pool regularly. Is my concern unfounded or should I be asking the pool company to delay the pebble sheen until I get back?

Hold off on the plaster until you can be there. Those first two weeks are SO important for the long term "health" of your pool's plaster. This is something that need to be taken care of every day-brushing, testing, adjusting pH and such as needed. It hurt for me to say that but................it is for the best!!!

Yep, as much as it hurts, I think that is the right choice. Too much of an investment to rush things and end up with an inferior product. Plaster is delayed until the 25th now, which is the day after I get back. :/

Cleaning and prep is scheduled for today and pebble tomorrow!!!

Going to run out and grab some Gatorades to keep the crew happy. Anything I should be reading up on or know before the pebble is applied?? Thanks!
