Pool Closing

Today we closed the pool. It was sad to see it go, but the temps are dropping and so are the leaves. It was warm enough to swim one last time today and then we got to work draining some water and putting the cover on. We will disconnect the plumbing and such over the next few days.

The bulge in the middle is a pool pillow, designed to absorb some of the ice pressure.

The rest of May

I have been woefully behind on the blog. I decided that to catch up I would just do a few posts that cover entire months. Here comes May. . .

Pool Sand and Wall

Today we made some major progress on the pool. The sand was delivered and moved to the pool area. Then, this evening we had some friends and family over to help us put up the pool wall.

Dirt Dumpster

This morning we had the dirt dumpster delivered for our pool and by the end of the evening we had our first few wheelbarrows loaded.

Pool Fence

Over this long Easter weekend we replaced our back fence, to be up to code for the pool. Our whole family and the Reagen kids came over to help with all the work that needed to be done.

Andrew and I used this two-man auger to dig the post holes. It would have been fairly straightforward, except we were working right next to the hedge, so that meant weird angles and roots.

The Pool Arrived

Who’s ready to go swimming? There is a new fence behind it. We need to beef up our back fence to bring it up to code for the pool.
