Loreto Bay Baja: The new pool in Founders

(This is a guest blog submitted by emailing blog@starkinsider.com. You can too!)

We’re down in Loreto Bay and watching how the new pool is progressing. I’d like to show some of the steps in how they do the beautiful stonework that they’re doing around the pool for those of you who haven’t seen how it’s done yet. After they’ve prepped the surface and laid a cement foundation, an artisan breaks then lays the stones so they almost fit together, spacing them perfectly. They level them. Then they pour a cement mixture between the stones.

They then use a shovel to remove the excess.

Then they wet-mop over the stone and cement as in the upper portion of this photo.

 

And then sponge away the cement that’s over the stones.

Voila! It’s beautiful! And here’s how the pool and stonework look as of February 2, 2009:

    Great update Bob!<br />

    BTW, I ran into Brian Partridge on my way to work this morning and I asked him when the pool will be completed. He figures it will be another 4 to 6 weeks provided work continues at the current pace and funds are made available to complete it. Let's keep our fingers crossed! :)<br />
