The electricians installed the electrical service for the pool. Extreme Stucco removed the debris from next to the sidewalk and road. The pool company debris and excess concrete remains next to the pool.
PRODUCTION DAY 21/22 - 15/16 APR 2019; 96 days since ground was broken.
An 18 day delay was due to Extreme Stucco not ordering enough pavers for the job.

Pool prepped for plaster. I'm in DC, traveling to Georgia, watching on security feed.

Mosaics installed. I'm in Atlanta, watching on security feed. Only issue was the crabs on the bottom step below the anchors are turned around. Plaster scheduled for Monday, 4/29.
PRODUCTION DAY 28- 29 APR 2019; 109 days since ground was broken.
Plaster completed and immediately started filling with water.
2 May 2019, I went swimming!
3 May 2019, started planting around the pool.
Final grading was not as good as I would have liked, but when I have the new sod put down it will be taken care of.
Now I'm waiting on Martin Pools to do their "Pool School" so they can show me how best to operate and maintain the pool. It could be 1 to 2 weeks before they can perform that job according to Cera.
