Back on the swimming pool this weeks to build the form work for the steps into the pool.
|The finished steps|
|Building the underside of the steps. There needs to be a void underneath for duct work|
|A side view of the shutters. I enjoyed putting this together as it's only the inside measurements that are critical|
|My work area was not great! It was raining and the layer of sand we put down to protect the floor slab stuck to all my tools.|
|A picture showing some of the bracing for the strings and the two tie bars holding both sides to each other|
|The completed stutters. There is two layers of steel mesh tied together inside the form work|
|We mixed the concrete by hand. Here's Neil and Richard levelling off and vibrating the concrete|
|The completed stairs in the pools with the side shutters off|
|Finished job. We'll remove the underside shutters on Monday|
Stripping the shutters off yesterday I was pleased with how these stairs turned out. I'm just looking forward to when we've got some water in the pool and I get to try them out for real!
