Following in Dad's Footsteps

Spent the afternoon in the garage creating some garage art.  I think I like it.

Pool House construction is underway

 The day the foundation was poured we had 5 cement trucks lined up in the open space west of the house.  If you look close you can see the rectangle area for the swim spa, an 'L' shaped garage area on the south and west side that will be used for an equipment room (furnace, water heater) as well as for storage (lawn mower, garden equipment, outside furniture, ATV and horse tack).  There is also a small 5X7' cold storage room for garden potatoes and apples.

 Here comes the swim spa!  I spent Saturday afternoon installing additional gravel on the south side of the bike path in an attempt to help the heavy equipment have a better chance of staying on the bike path and not rolling into the creek.

Stuart, the crane operator, guides the spa down the narrow bike path. 

 Up, up and away

 Perfect Fit

The two Spa delivery guys and the crane operator all sent me text messages asking for a copy of the photos.  They did such a good job I treated them to lunch at Barbacoa.  
The framers start tomorrow. 
I wonder if we can get the real Michael Phelps to stop by for a swim lesson
