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!!
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
Soon this will be the pool house view
Now comes the pour.
Tomorrow at 11:00.
