Progress report on our little pool

Today is the 36th business day of our eagerly anticipated and long awaited home improvement project.  I blogged about it early last month and several people have emailed me to ask if we're finished yet and ready to whip up some margaritas and celebrate.    Oh how I wish that was so!  But we are making great progress.  Here's the latest picture:

Day 36 006 blog 

Most of the delay was due to the coping (which can take a month to produce!) but we finally have it and it's now installed on our little pool (as the girls call it) and Daddy's bench and the slightly raised patio at the back of the photo. 

Today they installed some of the slate around the perimeter of the spa and readied the bench for slate tomorrow.  Next week, we'll get plaster inside the spa (and on those cool man-made rocks) then we'll be almost finished and just about ready to add water!  It's been in the 90's for the last three days so we're more than ready for that!

By the way, even though this is a hot tub/spa, we're not planning to heat it like a jacuzzi.  It'll be more like a little pool and only heated enough to be comfortable but not hot.   

Now where's my blender....
