Pool Deck Redo : Day 1

Yesterday morning at 8 a.m. sharp, the pool paver guy arrived. The first guy is a one man show that does all of the coping around the pool. He had this really cool big circular saw looking thing and walked around our pool with it to get the cap tiles off.

As soon as he stopped for a few minutes, we quickly took out Kodi's doggie door.  I wasn't worried about Kodi going out there while the guy was running that big machine, but the back pool deck is A MESS!!  Kodi does not approve of no doggie door either, just FYI.  He promptly woke me up at 5 a.m. by barking at me and then going and laying by where his doggie door normally is.

Back to the demo...after the guy had walked around to loosen up all of the cap tiles, he put a floating piece of Styrofoam looking thing in the pool and actually pulled off the cap tiles.

We're actually redoing the screen after they're done with the pool...our plan is to do the lower half ourselves.  So ignore the busted out screen in places.  We're also taking up the bottom poles of the screen (that lay on the pool deck) and having them paver all the way to the end of the deck, and then we'll re-install the beams on top of the new pavers for a more finished look.  It'll all work out in the end...trust me!

After all of the old cap tiles were removed, the guy cut and laid the some of the new coping.

  We have a lot of angles in our pool, especially in our spa area, so the coping guy thinks he's going to take till the end of Wednesday at least to get his stuff done.  Chris and I are ... well, to be quite honest, very anal about things being done the right way, and this guy was perfect for us.  He had this huge level that he used every time he added another piece of coping...for the top, and the front.

Progress is being made!!!  Woo Hoo!!!  Stay tuned to see what it all looks like at the end of Day 2!
