Let the MUD begin!
I am going ahead to give you your "job" for this part of the build. When they leave head out to the mud pit with your plans and a measure tape. Is it deep, wide, long, etc enough? Add about 8" to each wall and the bottom for the steel, guinite, and plaster.
Perfect weather for it this next few days!
Congratulations. We're in Argyle and at the end of September we went from excavation to gunite in like 3 business days and then tile and coping took a little. And then the rain hit. We have mud everywhere and since they had to access our backyard from the front I have what is basically a driveway in my front yard and there is mud everywhere. We pour the deck on Monday. Not sure why we couldn't pour the deck today with an 80 degree and sunny day.
The rain has just been relentless since the middle of August. I know it’s supposed to start back up again on Wednesday. Hopefully you’ll have some gunite that will enjoy getting wet!
They did what???? NICE! Got to love people who go the extra mile!
So...........did you do your "job" yet? What is that line in the deep end?
Main drain sounds about right to me. Nice looking excavating work. As for the driveway mess …. I wouldn't hold my breath. At least you should have nice weather for a few days.
Got it! Yeppers that is the main drain line.
Yeah there are some trades that do not clean up behind them selves They get in and out as fast as they can without regard to the mess they are leaving behind. I would see if you can find out their company name and give them a shout out on your local Yelp and Google reviews.
So long as the measurements came out more then you are good! You are looking for general size and making sure it is close to the correct size. Bigger is better than smaller. Like you said the gunite and plaster will fill some of it.
Congrats on getting started! It will be very messy for sure but all will be well in the end...
One PO went so far as to put a trash can by the pool and they still made a mess
