Good progress today despite rain this morning.
I am impressed with the amount of rio in the base slab.
Also not welded together but tied with wire as it should be.
The floor will be 100mm (4") thick and by the look of their string lines the walls will be at least 200mm (8") thick.

Randall, yes it's great that the pool is coming along now.
Once the main box part is poured the rest I will slow down a bit due to my availability to be here.
I have specified that I want to be here when they set out the internal levels, seating, sloped floor.
Company ok with that.

Best thing is that this is the last big spend for the house, (now 70% paid).
After the pool built, landscape and finish off fencinng for this yard so we can enjoy the spoace and get a dog.
Then finish the boundaries and lanscape the rest, but once backyard is done no hurry for the rest.

Here is the latest pictures of the pool.
Sorry that I missed out on more of the build but my wife sent pics to me on "LINE', but I can't seem to get trhem to this computer.
Work is slow as I stopped progress acouple of weeks ago to review a miostake that was about to be made.
Crew coing back in a week or two to continue.

Mick, do you mind sending me the pics when you can get to them? Or put them on here, or both? I'm really interested in this pool build. Thanks.

Hope you hack your blocks off the walls before you tile, if not lime will leach down the face of the tiles.

Hi Mick,

fatone is correct if you don't seal the blocks from the tiles.

Interested in what you will put on the blocks as a water proof sealant?

Looking good though mate and I can see you enjoying the pool as life guard with the little one, and the wifey delivering beers to you. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Vince. I will try next week.
Fatbob barney. Im not sure what the company is going to do reguards that sealing issue and i may not be there when they do it. I have visited a couple of their customers with pools built in same method as mine with no problems at all. I just have to have faith in them and i do.
