Pouring the Foundation

This day, the foundation was drying and curing after it was poured. They hand mixed concrete and shoveled it in. The foundation is so deep (4.5 feet!) because the Texas ground can be somewhat shifty. Swimming pools here require thicker concrete walls (and are much more expensive than in other places, as a result).

A look at the foundation and the site of the future patio.
