Construction 6: Pouring the Swimming Pool Concrete

After extensive preparation for the past six weeks, Roland's crew poured the concrete to form the 25 meter long swimming pool that Susan has designed.  It is curved at one end to a nice swallow area for Dana and kids to play.

The pool form
The pool was dug down to paras stone and in some places even a half meter more.  Then a concrete block wall was constructed and a form built with wood.

They has spend the last several days bring in supplies for the concrete making which is done on site, including more than 30,000 liters of water.
Behind the scenes work

Don't miss the videos below.  They worked from dawn today, until dark.  All the concrete needed to be poured in one go without stopping to avoid leaks, Roland has said.
