Pool Update

It's Outdoor Wednesday time, which is hosted by Susan of http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/ I have a few people ask about the pool so I thought of taking this opportunity to show you the progress. Just remember to visit Susan afterwards and check out everybody else's contributions too.
The pool was the easy part. It is pretty much done but it is what surrounds it that is taking forever to finish. This is the view from the master bedroom.
This is the view from the office.

Right now, they are working on the floor drain. Do you see that long strip?
And this is the view from the family room. I wish they could start adding the fun features but they can't until the concrete is poured.
Here is another view from the family room.
View from the kitchen dining. We are bird sitting until Thursday, see the 2 parrots in their cages?
and this is the view from the breakfast nook. As you can see, all my orchids are on the table. I cannot wait to put them back outside. I wish the deck would get done soon.
This is one reason they haven't poured the concrete on the deck. Our house is situated on a hill and this part of the pool's ground was 2.5 ft. lower so they had to build it up and then build a retaining wall.
What do you think? Should I paint the hollow blocks in terracota?
My poor plants on the terraces! Some have been buried in dirt, sand and cement. I can't wait to be able to clean up down there and get the plants healthy again. Looks like I am going to have to redo the whole thing.
They still have to lay the brick coping around the pool but we are able to use it. We sneak in as soon as the pool guys leave, lol! The water temperature right now is perfect, it's warm and we don't even have to turn the heater on.
Hopefully the next time I post more pool pictures is on Met Monday, when everything is completely done.
Thank you, Susan for hosting this Wed. event and thank you all for coming!
