Napa Pool Project - July 14 ' 07 update

Napa Pool Project - July 14, 2007

2 weeks and counting..... that is all the time left on this project before D-DAY.

With that in mind , the contractors have their work cut out for them in the next two weeks.

The pool is scheduled to be plastered and filled with water this coming week.
Hopefully the tile guy will be on the site bright and early Monday morning to finish the glass tile mosiac band with the three bronze water spouts properly installed.

Below is a picture of the work that he accomplished all last week - That is a total of 16 feet long by 18 inches height. ( someone works a tad bit slow )

A wider shot

Well at least the pool contactor got the equipment all set in place and hard wired for action.
As a procautionary measure we set the pool heater on the outside of the shed - that is why you see the two return pipes exiting the shed ( left hand corner of pix )
The three red handled ball valves will control the flow on the water fountian heads.

The raw concrete pots from Nichols Brothers in Washington state were acid etched using Schofield concrete stain - Dark Walnut is the color.
Note the assembly line !
The color is a tad bit darker than I would have liked to see it but it will soften in tone over the summer and be a good contrast color to the surrounding stone wall , tan concrete and dark brown wicker furniture.
