I was torn on the step decision and decided people can do the sit and turn as I'd rather fit 8 adults than 7, tough choice though as I'll probably very rarely have that many people in the hot tub at once 😂 the wife and I will have to throw more parties

Yeah, I see the capacity issue coming into play more with the kids using it than adults. Not sure I have interest in being in there with anyone but my wife.

IF I showed my wife your timelapse, she would MURDER me... she wanted one of these videos, maybe when yours are posted ill tell people its my backyard :)

LOVE your pool design, you are building our dream pool, but we are not in a house we plan to live in for more than 5 years so spending too much wasn't an option.

Our builder has told us that he has to stop with plumbing because its too cold (we are are in lewisville) is that something you are hearing from your builder?

They told us they may not continue work today because of rain. There is no rain until this evening. I'm not sure but we are pretty accustomed to slow as that has been all the builder has shown us.

Nada. Let’s hope tomorrow brings progress.

Same, they claimed they will come today for rebar, but plumbing cannot go until temps warm up ... I think there is a sub contractor shortage ... but we will see.. good luck hope there is progress today for you :)

To be fair, he claims he can build ours in 6 weeks, if he does it within 12 weeks, I will be so excited.

Some progress but mid-afternoon they started having issues with the diesel/water separator freezing. So, looks like we are stalled out until we get past the snowstorm next week.

Man, that’s frustrating that it’s been a week and they aren’t done digging. Hopefully the rest goes smoother.

Snowed in. Obviously having fun with power outages. Hopefully we are dried out and ready for work come Monday.

I’m sure you never thought you’d have a snow delay 🤪.

2 more days of digging and still not done. They had to move forms today by 2.5ft. I remeasured and everything seems correct. They also did chemical injections on half the pool today and will do the rest tomorrow. Really hoping this 2 week long dig process finishes tomorrow. Expecting soil engineer report soon but am expecting it to show the need for piers.

Looking good and fingers crossed that your steel crew is quicker than the excavators.

Moving feature wall back 18” or so which will give us 10’ between it and the waterline. Nothing else happened today other than installing a sump pump to remove water from rains. Rumor has it that gunite isn’t as delayed as it has been the last 9 months. Fingers crossed.
