Things are moving along quickly this week. We had the track for the pool cover installed today and they finished the pool equipment/AC fence. Most of the pool equipment was installed too. And, the flagstone work started today! We expect two weeks of dusty flagstone work and then our pebble finish should be going in.

It looks like we will get our pebble finish in 2 weeks! Work on the flagstone patios continues, and work on the kitchen island has started.

Here are pictures of what the island should end up looking like:

We were supposed to get our pebble finish today. The pebble guys showed up and started prepping the pool, but then they realized that a part was missing (something that goes around the drains for our in-floor system). Now, it has to be ordered, shipped out, and we have to get back on the pebble finish schedule. I'm waiting to hear back from my PB about how long this will take, but we're very disappointed. It's supposed to start raining on Thursday and rain off and off for the next 10 days.

On the positive side, our landscapers are starting to grout the patios.

Thanks Kim. We just heard that they are going to try to do the pebble finish on Friday (if it doesn't rain). Rain is forecasted for that day, but at least they were able to get us on the schedule. They said that they will just push it back each day if it rains, but we will keep our spot on the schedule. The new parts were overnighted and should arrive tomorrow.

What in the heck did they not order? Covers?
Despite the mess, your yard is gorgeous. Love the deck! Can't wait to see how the finish looks.
It was plaster rings and lids that they were missing. They ordered them awhile ago and the PB said they had been in our yard for over a month (in a box). But yesterday, they couldn't find the box anywhere. They assume that it got thrown away accidently by the landscapers. I'm just happy that we are back on the schedule. :)
