On Friday, the tile and stone guys arrived. They will spend 3 days working on our pool. Dave and his co-worker (whose name I have not yet gotten) know their stuff. First they nailed in strips of a fiber-board that acted as a base for the tile.
Then Dave installed the tile that will be at the waterline. His co-worker began choosing and cutting the stone that will edge the pool.
Our pool will be 6' deep at it's deepest – where Dave is in the photo below. That will be a nice "bobbing" and exercise depth. If you look close you can see the bench on the right side where we can sit in the water and rest (or sip wine).
I decided that it was time for me to climb into the pool. This will be the view of the house from the deep end. Those walls are going to need some plants and/or a variety of pretty things to look at.
