Concrete complete!

Pergola is up!

Plaster day 1.  We went with Crystal Stones Mini Pebble finish in Caribbean blue.  Only had one picture of a completed pool to base my decision on but we have traveled to the Caribbean many times so I figured we couldn't go wrong!

Another angle after plaster day 1.

Plaster complete!  Time to fill 'er up!

Still filling and will continue to fill over night.  Can't wait to wake up and see what it looks like!  The boys and several neighbors have been so anxious to get in there.  They were trying to fill it up with buckets after school today. 

All in all things have gone very smoothly.  I am definitely ready to be finished though!  Hopefully tomorrow it will be full and the pool guy can start the pumps and begin adding the chemicals.  Friday the dirt will be graded around the pool.  We are working on our landscape plan and will be shopping for plants this weekend.  Next week we will have the fence put up and start landscaping.  We will also have rock put around the pergola posts and a rock fire pit built.  The concrete deck will be stained in 2 weeks.  Hopefully by mid-May our project will be complete! Maybe this weekend I can  get some of my pots planted with fresh flowers and start playing with a furniture arrangement and shopping for furniture and umbrellas.

Sangria anyone?
