PB came out and started to dig on January 4, 2013. It started to rain so they stopped and came back the next day. Took 3 days to dig.
On January 7, 2013 they came out to install the rebar. For the next 2 days it rained.
On January 10th they applied the Gunite. Took them a little longer to spray because of the humidity. The mix got clogged in the lines a few times. They were not able to spray, then other times it was spraying more water than mix.
This is where my Equipment will be. Out of sight and help muffle the noise a little.
They delivered some of the Equipment yesterday and plan to come tomorrow to run the plumbing.
Wednesday they plan to install the waterline tile.
It looks like small possibility for rain on Thursday and Friday, so they may have to wait till next week to pour the deck.
I will keep up the updates as they continue on.
