While most people are getting ready to close their pools for the year, we just opened ours. Better late than never right?
It’s not much to look at now but a lot of work went into just getting it functional. There actually is still a small leak somewhere but hey we are using it in the meantime while we can.
Here is what it looked like before we moved in.
In addition to cutting back all the weeds and brush, we dug back the bank so you still have some yard on the other side of the pool. It’s a great place for bags.
We are going to add a retaining wall probably made out of railroad ties. Eventually, we think the corner would be a good spot for a fire pit.
I think the last time I showed you the pool it looked like this.
Then came priming and painting the concrete bottom (color: pool blue) and acid washing the fiberglass sides.
I bet you can guess where we will be this Labor Day weekend. Have a good one!
