Backyard taking shape

We spent a long time in 2003 designing a beautiful dock for our future home site. Unfortunately, Hurricane Ivan decided to toy with our plans. Mr. Big discussed many different building methods to ensure that a new dock would not find a similar fate.

At the same time, we have been patiently waiting for the pool to begin. The revised plans by our architect seemed to be taunting it and they will come (guests that is...). We were just so excited to see what it was all going to look like together.

We're still not there, but the dock and pool have been started. As with each other step in building, it has been exciting seeing the footprint develop.

Oh my goodness, it's HUGE! (Yes, that is Mr. Big standing out there in the distance) Given it has a lap lane, we expected it to be bigger than usual, but I never imagined anything this large. It's been quite a surprise. They should be shooting the pool this week and the dock wood is ready to be put down imminently. We're keeping our fingers crossed that we'll be swimming for the holidays. Perhaps the nice guy in the big red suit can help out...
