This is a HAPPY DAY! The plasterers came out this afternoon and plastered our pool! Before they can start, they have to clean out all of the "gunk" that has accumulated at the bottom of the pool while it was being built and they have to pump out the water, too.
The sides of the pool get covered in plastic before they start spraying the plaster to protect all of the tile and stone.
Here the plaster is being sprayed on!
Check out the interesting shoes they wear while they're in the pool. They have little spikes on the bottom! This creates a bunch of little holes in the plaster at the bottom of the pool while they walk around, but they come back later and smooth over those holes while they're wearing a different type of shoe - a big foam-pad shoe!
It's just like putting icing on a cake! They use their spatula-like tools to smooth out the plaster so it looks real pretty!
It looks like he's walking on ice, but it's the white plaster. The foam shoes keep him from putting holes or dents in the plaster. Cute, huh?
Here are the tiles that delineate our steps. I LOVE IT!
Here's the little starfish we put at the bottom of the pool in Hunter's Cove. It will be fun to swim down there and touch it! I feel like a kid again!
And, yes, folks, this is an actual picture of our garden hose in the pool filling it with water! If you look closely, you can see that water is accumulating in the bottom of the pool! WOO HOO! It's been a long time coming and I couldn't be more thrilled! I'm nervous because the water will be running all night long to fill the pool. I'm afraid that when I step out of bed in the morning, the carpet will be soaking wet because the pool has overfilled! My husband said not to worry - he'll get up at 3:00 a.m. to check it! He's so good to me!
We also had landscape lighting put in yesterday, so tomorrow night we'll be able to see the backyard in all its glory - a full pool with lighting in the landscaping! What a fun experience this has been and I'm so happy with how it has all turned out. Suncor Services has been exceptional in their delivery of our pool! We are so pleased! I would recommend them wholeheartedly! Talk with ya' later - I've gotta go check the water level!
