It has been a very busy two weeks, and I seem to keep apologizing for my lapses in updates. We got the latest 3-D model of the pool area and our pool consultant, Shane, is back in town again to finalize the hydrology designs with Fernando, our plumber. [wpvideo HjamOIms] That is what the pool will look like, but now it's time to build it.

[wpvideo ph6wZUlO] Here's the crew smoothing out the concrete for the equipment room floor slab. The equipment room slab and footings are looking good! Once the slab has been poured, Bruce and crew began forming the pool walls, pool cistern slabs and walls for the overall pool area. [caption id="attachment_3380" align="aligncenter" width="480"] The pool area[/caption] Here is what will eventually, the bottom of the infinity edge portion of the pool. We also finally poured the cistern for the first 2BR/2BA poolside villa and have stripped the forms to re-use for the pool area and 2nd poolside villa. Here's the cistern as viewed from below. You can see all the snap-ties which held the plyforms in place to create a uniform wall width. The cutout door is where equipment for both poolside villas will be stored. We also poured the slab for the 2nd poolside villa. Since it is a suspended slab, we'll have to wait 3 weeks for the concrete to completely cure.

Conner's dog champion also had an inter-species moment with one of the local donkeys who decided to come into town for a visit.
Have a great week everyone!
