|The mosaic glass tile arrived last week by ship and has been installed|
We looked all over for tile that would blend into the color of the water and found the perfect tile -- in Canada!
|The tile we chose is called 'bubble glass'
since it truly looks like there are bubbles in the tile
Our excavator returned to backfill around the pool and to level the ground next to the pool to form a wonderful new patio area. Steve Paris, the owner of the excavator company, came himself to personally ensure the job was done to his satisfaction. We are delighted that Steve proudly displays the 'Digging for a cure' banner, in support of the fight against breast cancer, on his backhoe). We think it is perfectly placed:
|Steve takes a moment to survey his work - well done!|
At the last minute we changed the location of the new pool patio and we are delighted!
|We will have a new huge patio which will be shaded by our banyan tree
(and the views are fabulous!)
While we have been busy building a brand new (HUGE) pool and patio area, we are also re-plastering our current swimming pool and wading pool (very popular with our littlest guests and their parents!):
|The guys re-plastering the original Villa swimming and wading pools
have good reason to be proud; great job!
This coming week's agenda is a busy one - finish tiling and plastering the pool and install the new pump and filters and fill with water!
