2012 Home Renovations – Part 09 – Rebar for the pool and its retaining wall is up

When I came home from work today, the pile in the front yard was even bigger than when I left. I’m starting to think I should leave it there, carve into it the faces of some famous people and charge folks admission. It really is quite the sight.

This is day 6 of construction proper (ignoring the tree clearing step). The start date was Monday February 27.

The big advance for today was that a lot of the rebar work was completed.

First the usual views from the existing lanai

Then peering into the pool you can see the rebar making up the bottom

And the retaining wall in the back yard is showing the skeleton of its eventual final form

The trench for the base of the driveway retaining wall has been dug, in the back you can see how they’ve creatively strung up my coaxial cable (orange) so they won’t be running heavy machinery over it.

Looking at the trench from the other end show the steps that it needs to accommodate the down hill

And here is the view from the top of the driveway. Obviously we’ve been parking next to the street lately…
