Our contractor is doing a great job with all the rain we have had. As soon as the rain had stopped Saturday, they were back at it installing forms and laying the gravel base for the concrete deck pour. They have 75% of the new drain system set in concrete with hopes of pouring most of the main deck by Thursday. We still need a bit of good luck to meet our target of being done on May 15th.
The board did need to make a scope change. We decided it was in our best interest to remove the block wall along the wading pool and replace it with a new footer and wall. Once the sub-contractor showed up on site and started taking elevations, he was very concerned about pouring the deck so high on the old wall. In order to fund this, the board has decided not replace the sitting wall in the entryway and decided not to build a new sitting wall outside the entry. We are still working on a final design for deck along rock wall near entry.
