Phase III

Phase I was making the main house inhabitable

Phase II was renovating the carport into garages

Phase III is creating an outdoor oasis.

Phase I and II are not complete and that’s ok. We continue to plow forward however we proceeded with Phase III.

When we speak of a pool, there are two reactions from others.

Oh that’s amazing!!

Or

I want to fill my pool in. Never again.

We are pool people.

We are home people

We are stay-cation people

So Phase III excites us.

It’s relaxation. It’s peace. It’s fun and having pool parties!

Step 1: Finding the perfect pool contractor is not easy. It’s all about referrals.

So far, he is perfect. He calls and gives us updates. He does what he says he will do. He cleans up after himself.

Step 2: picking out finishes. This is my part and it was so easy this time. Bobby brought over boxes and boxes of samples. Pool tile and bullnose for the steps must be picked along with the pool coating The pavers for the deck were already chosen weeks before.

It was easier than I thought it would be. You know that lightbulb moment when things just fall into place.

Scrape the ground day

Dig the hole day

Frame

Steel

Plumbing

Soon this will be the pool house view

Now comes the pour.

Tomorrow at 11:00.

Stay tuned
