No swimming for the 4th of July

We had optimistically projected that this installation would be completed for the 4th of July weekend.
But with several changes , additions and deletions the construction process was slowed down.
We hope to be done in 3 weeks for the hottest days of summer.

A few more weeks....... and then we can take a dip in the pool and lounge on the deck overlooking the bay.

debinca, patrick and laura,
thanks for stopping in and leaving your thoughts.
I'm looking forward to seeing this project progress.
It's been in the planning stage for so long that I thought it would never get started.
I'm in the process of collecting plants from various nurseries for the planting phase, which is slated in two weeks.

Looking forward to the Ipe deck finally being installed too. You won't catch me walking those joists . It's a mighty far way down to the grade.
