If you missed that discussion, more on that here.
But yes, we decided to go ahead and take out the pool. Construction started yesterday and…whoa.
What have we gotten ourselves into.
Well…I’ll show ya!
That, right there, is a dream.
The best of both worlds. We still get to keep a pool, except the new pool will be about 1/3 of the size of our current monstrosity and tucked at the back of the yard that we currently are unable to utilize because of the pool fence. The new pool will have an automatic pool cover, and a large locked gate. Grace is signed up for swim lessons, and I think all of these safety measures combined with the smaller size and set back make sense for us.
We get a yard. All that area from the brick to the current pool was our old pool. Now we can have a playhouse and a swing set and our kids can run around- I am very pleased with our decision. NOT so thrilled about the next 6 months of construction. But still pleased.
What do y’all think? You all had very strong opinions last time, what do you think about the compromise?
Also! Thanks for your kindness on yesterdays post- the wallpapers are all done from our Biscuit prints, this season and last, that we had made into wallpapers for the store. Maybe we should look into making them for you all as well!
