Pre-grade was done today (I decided to pay someone for this and it was money well spent). Plumber may start as early as Friday. More likely it will be next week. I do have a ton of extra dirt though. Good news is my neighbor behind my fence wants it, just have to get it over there to him. The guy that did my work today will most likely do it, we'll just take down a couple of fence panels and shuttle it through.

Plumbing has begun. The plumber texted me last night saying they would have to start on Monday, I guess someone else's scheduling gave him an opening today and they arrived around 9:30 to get going. Dirt mounds again!

We're moving right along now. Plumbing finished up today, tile is starting tomorrow and they think they will be done Friday. I have my footers for screen lined up next week and pavers the following week. Electric still has to get in, but things are coming together. Screen will be the biggest hurdle, I think that is going to push our finish out a bit, but hopefully they will come through for me. Excited to see some tile going in, I think it will start to feel real then.

Thanks! This is the shady side and we're still getting a lot of reflection. Can't wait to see it in the sun on the spa spillover. My wife saw one photo of this tile on pintrest and we searched far and wide for it. It looks amazing so far. When you walk in the front door of our house, you can see all the way out to the pool, we wanted this back wall to have the wow factor, I think we're going to get it.

Got some dirt moved around this weekend and my irrigation hooked back up. I'll have 1 zone to put in and some adjustments to make once the pool is done.

We had an awful storm this afternoon, was good because the area around my skimmer clearly wasn't compacted very well. It also took out a portion of my silt fence. Have an inspection on Tuesday, so I have some work to do cleaning up before that.

Tile should finish tomorrow. Footer for the screen is being formed tomorrow and poured on Wednesday.

We're about to hit a bit of a slow down though. After this week, no activity until the 23rd, I'll have Pregrade and pavers delivered. Paver insgall to start 4/26. Waiting to get confirmation on screen, but I think it will be at least 2 weeks after pavers, possibly more.
