We are now in week number 3 of our backyard renovation. It has been pure craziness since day 1 of the dig but there soon will be an end in site. The boys are getting very excited and I will be happy to have my backyard back.
Before any of the craziness could begin though we had the huge task of deciding just what we wanted our pool to look like. There are so many choices and the sky really is only limited to your imagination and of course $$$!;)
When looking thru my inspirations that I have been collecting over the past few years I found that I leaned more to the Grecian style pools. The Hubster and I wanted something that fit the style of our home and we felt that the Grecian style did just that.
|We sat down and showed our pool designer my inspiration pics and described the feel we were trying to achieve with our pool. This is what we landed up on.|
|So the hole was dug and rebar installed.|
|Next up came the gunite installation.|
|It was truly amazing watching them sculpt the gunite into our design. We joked that our pool looked more like a mid evil castle at this point.|
|Then came in the plumbing and electrical install which made the yard 100X more messy.|
|After the plumbing and electrical went in it was time to form the patio extensions and install the pool coping.|
|We are just loving how the coping came out.|
|To date they are working on finishing up the tile work.|
|With the tile work coming to end we needed to decide on what color we wanted our pool plaster to be. These are all the Peeble Sheen colors we had to choose from. Who knew there were so many decisions that go into building a pool!?|
We also needed to decide on what we wanted our patio overlay to look like and this is our inspiration pic for that. We meet with the overlay specialist this week and I can not wait! Our Peeble Sheen install happens this week as well and the landscaping begins. If all stays on track we are told that there should be water in our pool by the weekend!:) After the Peeble Sheen is installed the overlay specialist will be back next week to do the patio and we will be complete! Then we will celebrate with margaritas!;)
