    10/29 or 29/10

    Well the weather came in late last night I believe from that tropical storm. So its been a light rain pretty much all day. I didn't think it's trajectory would hit up North but....well.... you know the weather.



    Everything textured and waiting for paint, adding the side skirts around the perimeter of the roof.



    Moving along. I shoveled sand for another few hours last night to get the extra sand spread out while my lab kicked back and enjoyed the cool cement. The Composite deck will cover it.



    4th most important item following the Pool, Pool bar and fridge for ice cold beer has to be the bar stools.. . Figured I would give them a try. I sat in them for a bit and they are actually quite comfortable for 389 bht each.

    I agree, but I have to say, a good Bourbon just seems to taste better with your feet up.

    Why would you spread the sand around there? I thought that's where you are going to dig the hole to put the pool?
    Are you searching for something to do?

    Cheers

    There will be a composite deck between the cement as shown and the pool on both sides and both ends. We are putting the sand under the pool decking. The pool will go about where the grass is.

    When you said this.

    "Moving along. I shoveled sand for another few hours last night to get the extra sand spread out while my lab kicked back and enjoyed the cool cement. The Composite deck will cover it."

    I mistaken thought you meant the composite deck would cover the "cool cement" that your dog was enjoying.

    So it seems your pool is not going to as big as I thought, more like an oversize bathtub maybe?
    I thought the pool was going in between the concrete you have laid and the decking going on top of the concrete. My bad!

    Looking forward to seeing the finished project.

    Pool dimensions are 4.5 meter wide, 12 meters long. Deep end will be 2 meters. shallow end 1.2meters. I'd say its a bit bigger then an oversized bathtub... It will be appx 86,000 liters or 22,700 gallons....

    10/31 or 31/10

    Today the weather was nice, a couple of guys started installing the privacy wall composite wood.







    Installed composite wood on the privacy wall.



    My Uncle and I started on the pool bar.

    11/1 or 1/11

    Weather beautiful today. I was busy with Yard upkeep and mowing the back forty while uncle and his partner plugged away.



    Privacy fence all installed. Let the 25 year warranty clock begin.



    Got both side skirt composite wood installed. Tomorrow is the front



    Far cry from looking anything like my pool bar but its there and progressing. I bought the tile today and the granite is already here.



    Standing by the pool bar. Someday there will be some water out there. Today would have been a perfect day after busting my ass on the yard upkeep and sweating my ass off to go take a swan dive in it.

    Pool install looks to begin around 11/20 or so.

    Taken that your pool is going to be pre-fabricated is it going to fit down the soi to get into your place?
    You have posted before about large things creating issues regarding access.
    Can't wait until 20/20/2020 so I can see it completed.

    Looking good as previous couple of posters have said.

    Actually HL, our uncle is quite meticulous. Shame really as I had told him some time back he should form a general contractor business and build locally. I really never look over his work but then again we are friends and always joke around while he is here.

    Ya know ootai, The owner came with 3 of his crew to confirm as my wife and I had our typical concerns on how they plan on getting it down our soi. They surveyed it all and said like they all do " No Problem" . That said while I have heard that before and they have showed up only to have to change their original plan that was initially "No Problem" to now a big issue but they always seem to figure a way. He said he was bringing 2 cranes. One on the transport truck and one of those cranes that is just a crane to move it. Like every time...Its one of those times where I just sit back and watch. Good thing, its all included in the cost. . I will definitely post pictures of the event.

    11/2 or 2 /11

    Not lots of big advancements. The pool bar is a slow multi step process.



    Did get the front facia installed, now will be the ceiling install.



    Pool bar progressing. Had a to modify it a bit to add the doors. We got some tile in. But its one of those processes where you can only do a bit and have to stop as you can't move on with the cement wet.

    We have a pool bar.....

    Good Progress. Our uncle and his partner are almost as far a long as they can go. Now we wait for the pool install which is 2 to 3 weeks away. Once installed and running we will install the composite decking. There are still some things to do to the cover and paint. My wife wanted to paint it herself but the guy who does the inside ceiling paints it and has his own way.





    Tomorrow is tile around the perimeter and final touches.



    My wife's touch to the design, a granite sitting bench.



    Spent last few hours carefully cleaning and sweeping up the cement dust.

    11/6 or 6/11

    Been lots of finishing and cleaning up. Pool bar done for now. There will be more work going on but we will wait for the pool to arrive







    Our Electrician friend is now adding power for the pool, jacuzzi, lights, fan and fridge. He did our house and does excellent work.



    All our electrical is in conduit and underground. This is the back side of the pool deck area where they pulled wire into the breaker box. This will all be painted in a when last bit of work is done.

    Location for breaker box, the big breaker for the Jacuzzi and power for the pool bar fridge



    Power layout on back side of wall. we are going to run small lights on the poles along the deck area. Wife found some electric and Solar units. also adding a ceiling fan above the pool bar


    Still a lot more to do.


    • Pool comes in about 2 weeks. Ung (Uncle) and Boon will be here to coordinate pool height alignment with cement deck so we can install the composite decking
    • Ceiling/painter comes next week to finish ceiling in bar area and then paint all.
    • Still have to coordinate the pebble tech surface install for all the cement.


    Word in the Mooban has gotten around about the pool install and the few kids I help with English homework have already asked to come swim. One lady in the market said we should open up a Home Stay. I said absolutely not. I followed along with BIPs Home Stay thread and I am just not the type to have people coming in and out of my place all the time.

    11/15 or 15/11

    Pool progress was slow last week as I was off on a business trip. A few things did progress



    The pool bar area ceiling is in place and primed. There will be a ceiling fan right above the bar.





    The cement is all primed and ready and electrical in place. However this is like any project, it has to happen in sequence. The painter does not want to paint until the pebble tech surface is done to avoid paint overspray, the electrician doesn't want to install the power breaker box and other outlets and ceiling fan until the paint is done. So we are waiting on the pebble tech surface which will happen Friday. after that its should go bang bang




    I am started installing the Solar/Electric pool lights today. Got the first one set in place to check.


    This coming week will be busy. They will start excavating and deliver the pool. I met with the foreman today to go over location, plumbing and electrical. Ground break starts tomorrow. It will take a week to get it all in before it has settled in place. Friday is the pebble tech install, then Sat and Sunday is paint and electrical.

    Wife discussed a New Years party.
