Friday 4/14 - They came out and marked off all the water and electrical lines and drew the pool out on the ground. This was interesting to watch. This gentlemen had the copy of the design that the city signed off on, so he started taking measurements in all kinds of directions so he could get everything to scale.
This is the architect's drawing of the pool. I love the size, not to big or little and tons of cool deck on the side so there is plenty of room for chaise lounges.
Then he used a string and some tape and spray painted the ground in the exact shape and measurements the pool would be in. He was amazing to see how it all came together.
When he was finished the supervisor came out and double checked all of his measurements. Everything was perfect so now we are all set for the dig to take place.
Wednesday 4/19 - The Dig!!! Boy things started off bright and early. The crew got here a little before 7AM . The Superintendent came out and layed down a mat to cover the water meter box so it wouldn't get broken - -
As he dug the dirt the other one hauled it out to the dump truck.
This is our view from the end of the patio.
That was a lot for one day. You can really see the shape of the pool. Plumbing and electrical is next.
It is going to be so fun for this summer. I can't wait.
