If you have been following along this is where we left off - plumbing, electrical and rebar all done. If you missed that you can catch up here. It was fascinating to see how all the "guts" of the pool were installed.
On Thursday 5/4 two trucks and a crew pulled up and things changed fast. We have shotcrete. That is the cement type base of the pool. Kind of like the foundation of your house. A truck with a big hopper and a big cement truck pulled up in front of the house and a huge hose was attached to it.
Then he filled the area to form the top.
They use this big tool to cut the shape they want.
Next step is a crew will be coming to form the decking around the pool and pour the base for the deck. We are going with something called "Acrylic Lace". It is a kind of Kool-deck type product. Much cooler than concrete or tile to walk on and not slippery. After that the tile around the edge of the pool goes on and the inside "plaster" which is actually a product called "Pebble Sheen" is applied. Can't wait to see more.
