These 2 pictures were almost a week apart -- they created the forms last Friday, and poured the cement yesterday. The cement has to cure a few days before the cool-decking can be applied. Bo just told me that they're going to try and do the interior of our pool first, though, so we can swim sooner.
Our hot tub/spa will be delivered on Wednesday. We purchased a floor model in late June, and when I went to set up delivery last week, we found out they sold it. All worked out fine, though, as they are building a brand new one for us for the same price.
Maybe I'll get to swim before my birthday?
