Day 2: Big Dig

By the end of day 2 this is what we have. It rained a little yesterday but it didn't seem to slow them down.

Day 1 - Sod and concrete removal.

We were impressed with how quickly they removed all the sod, the concrete and began framing the pool. They were supposed to be here around 7:30am (the day after Thanksgiving) we figured they would be late, but instead they were early!

Phase 1: Backyard Renovations

We have been in our house nearly 10 years, we also decided that we are not going anywhere. So we have decided to renovate our backyard, to include a pool and outdoor living area. We have already spent a fair amount of time developing a plan, and fortunatley for us we have a good friend who laid it out on paper. Step 1: we hired a pool company construction begins November 27th. Step 2: we are taking bids from contractors.

We have let our yard go a little bit...knowing we are going to tear it up why water the grass. This does make the yard look more pathetic than it really was.
