Pool floor

The floor of the pool was poured last week. I haven't heard how things went, but the floor is in place. That's a whole lot of concrete. The mechanical room has also seen more concrete. We expect the building floor and other concrete work to continue over the next couple of weeks. One piece at a time..

Tying the bar

With most of the bar on site, the Pool Company spent the end of the week tying it all together in preparation for concrete on Tuesday. Imagine winding twist ties on a few thousand bags, except stooped over in a hole, in the rain, at 32 degrees, all day. I think that's pretty much what it's like.
It is moving along though.

Like molasses in January...or December as the case may be.

When it rains it pours...and when it doesn't it freezes solid! That's Oregon weather for ya.
The cold weather and delays in getting the rebar for the pool bottom made for a few slow days on the job site recently. The bar has since arrived and the guys from The Pool Company are working fast to have the mesh in and ready for concrete early next week. Freezing temperatures also made earthwork difficult. Plumbing continues on the building and the surge pit walls continue to rise in preparation for concrete delivery. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and warm up enough to allow the concrete to be laid down.
