đŸ˜‚. That’s ok, I know roughly the costs, just curious to see if you were brave enough to let everyone know lol. I’m always amazed when people really get into it and design masterpieces. Looking forward to the final pics, I hope you’re doing a collage in an album of start to finish. Good on you!

No price can really be put on the memories you will be building with your family. To have a place where your child wants to be and where they bring their friends to hang out is priceless!!!

It was a quiet week, we had a few days of storms and that delayed the Gunite. The plumbers came back a couple of times to do some small work. Here's a shot of the main plumbing all coming together:

Make sure to take a pick, print it out, and label all of those pipes. I hope you will never need this pic but you will thank me if you ever need to find just one pipe!

Don't feel bad on the price. Our neighbor just finished their "Epic" pool and just from the guestimates on the pulled permits, they are spending just about as much (if not more) as the house by itself is worth. If they were to sell, they would take a huge hit on the pool, but they say they are in for the long haul and not concerned about resell cost.

NICE! Is there anyone home that can water the shell? This helps it cure slower. You can set up some spinklers to help with the job.

It is time for YOUR set of links!

Now is also a good time to ask what test kit your PB will be providing so we can fill in any holes.
