This week, we started building our eagerly and long-awaited swimming pool 😀
It’s been a long time coming – from having the plans drawn up; the plans approved by the local municipality; and then waiting for the rainy season to be over so that we could start digging… Well, we’re now here and the big day arrived!
First, we had to move the boat port for Indigo 1 to make way for the pool…. Finding space for two boats, a boat trailer, an offroad trailer, and the landy to make space for the bricks and soil twas a bit of a mission….
Then, yesterday, the bricks arrived and the pallets had to be lifted over the front fence with a crane…
Today, the digger loader arrived and started to dig….
And what comes out, must go somewhere. There was soon a mountain of soil in front of Indigo Scuba!
Much of the soil will be used as a retaining wall but the rest will need to be removed tomorrow….
