Day 6 of Pool Construction

Wednesday. Sweet Wednesday.
I left for work at 8:45 as the worker bees were making their way to the backyard. I HATED to leave and not be there to watch the improvements unfold. I was so anxious to come home!!! I drove up at 1:15 to find a COMPLETE HOLE! By the time they left for the day, the dirt pile had been removed and the bottom of the hole was leveled with pea gravel.

Wednesday night Mark spoke with the salesman, who informed us that they were having some issues lining up the sky track, which is the crane that we need to lower our pool on site. If we're lucky, it will be Friday before the pool is delivered.

Some pics. from Day 6: Notice the fantabulous fence posts that Mark, his AMAZING brother, Frank, and too cool for school friend Joe worked their patooties off installing all weekend in the 100+° weather. I love them so!

Day 5 of Pool Construciton

Monday the pool peeps were no shows. By Tuesday, we were anxious and beginning to feel a bit of frustration at the time schedule. They showed up at 8:00 and were working when I left for work at 8:15. By the time I made it home, around 12:45ish, the pool peeps were gone. The rain (yes RAIN...the first we've seen in AGES) made its way to Georgetown and scared the worker bees away. And there's the end of Day 5.
