Day Ninety-One, 26 January, 2016Oops. I got a bit out of sequence here. I created two draft postings, mostly photos at the early stage of a posting. I intended to work on this one first, but instead somehow got to work on the posting for January 27 and 28. What can I say? Just read along and enjoy.
The odd looking face below is where several of the utilities enter the pool house. The pipe below in the photo contains an electrical wire so that we can control the in-pool light from the utility room instead of having to go down to the pump house simply to flip a switch.
The two 'eyeballs' above are new pieces of pipe that I installed to run water in (right pipe) to the whole house filter and water softener and back out (left pipe) to be reconnected to the pool house water supply.
It seems complicated, but that is because once the water supply comes into the pool house, it's under the cast concrete floor. So, to be able to have the filter and softener do the intended job, it was necessary to capture the water supply at the entry point.without having to dig up the concrete floor inside. All will be made clear eventually.

Well, when our louvers got delivered, we ended up after the installation with about a 3/4" to 1" gap at the bottom of the louver window. We had that happen with the Mennonite house where the gap was covered with wood and we went on about our business. We had it happen with the first pool house. Concrete was used to fill the gap and we went about our business.
With this part of the project, the gap was noticed and everyone thought it was almost a manufacturing defect. Turns out, we filled the gap with concrete and we went about our business.
Here, you can see the gap was very neatly filled with concrete. It's now waiting for priming and painting.

There's many more photos than appear in each posting. You can see all the photos of the construction project on Flickr at: https://www.flickr.com/gp/winjama/0wVc3s. There will be new photos added each day of the project.
