This Friday, the pool company started our pool. The first thing they did was dig up all our grass in the back yard and then they put down lines to indicate where the forms, and eventually the pool, will go. We're glad they talked it through with us beforehand. We ended up pushing the whole pool back an extra foot since we were worried it'd end up a little too close to the covered portion of the lanai.
It's exciting to see it all starting to come together!
