Was I ever wrong. About 11:45 AM, out of the north from Chetumal way, here it came. Not a super soaker, but still, enough to make all the workers scurry for shelter a couple of times. Good think it's now lunchtime. The guys can all hunker down and little, if any, work time will be lost.
|Widening the Ramp Area|
|Plastering Above the Waterfall Area|
We may not reuse the plastic waterfall piece that we used in the old waterfall. We're not planning on having much in the line of a free-falling waterfall, more of a cascade sort of thing, if that helps, so we're looking to Mario and crew for that design.
|Plastering Pump House Back Side|
Probably after that, the columns will be plastered along with the beam. All that sort of stuff has to be done before work starts on the pool and the deck.
|Hidden Away, Work Is Happening|
Finally, I saw a couple of heads bobbing around in amongst the Areca palms, so I grabbed my camera and went to investigate.
Here's where a lot of work is going on. What they're doing is building a suspended shelf, supported by a lot of rebar on the backside of the pool. It runs in between each of the columns back there, and will be providing a support area for the wall screens, so they present a uniform appearance all around the pool. Is that cool or what?
