Debbie Moles called to check status. She said that the raising of the back wall shall be complete by Friday. I asked her about the wall that was moved on the south side of the house, and if permits were ever secured for the job. I told her that the footing on that wall were not to Gilbert AZ. code.

Week 39

Thursday, December 22nd, 2005

Debbie Moles called and I told her that I was not going to contact the neighbors about the wall, due to I can not make promises on Paddocks behalf. She said that was fine and would get in touch with Scott.

I spoke with Debbie Moles, and she was wondering how things were going. I told her that Friday was the only day I have seen anyone here. She said she would talk with Scott about progress. I voiced my concern about the amount of time it is taking to complete this pool. An example would be that in all of a week Poco Verde has worked less than 1 day.

Week 31

Thursday, October 27th, 2005

Message from Debbie Moles, she received the pictures and met with Scott Dilliam.

Week 29

Thursday, October 13th, 2005

Debbie Moles called at 11:30am and said Lloyd Wilson was being replaced by Scott Dilliam for now. I told her about the water seeping into the pool from the planter. She said Scott would be out soon to look over the project. She also said Poco Verde was waiting for ‘sheening’ (sheer?) till the top cap could be placed on the wall and that was why the last brick has not been placed.
I met with Lloyd Wilson and Scott Dilliam at 1:15pm. I asked about the top of the wok pedestals being covered with decking and stamped like tile. He said that was the plan. Lloyd said they had to upgrade the waterfall pump to a 2 ½ hp due to the size. He said they were going to float the decking in front of the wok pot pedestals to eliminate the gap in the tile. Poco Verde told him that they could straighten out the wall with stucco. Scott is going to meet with them to discuss what they are going to do about the wall. Heat pump still needs to be connected, pump bases need to be sturdy, fiber optic for wok pots and sheer all still need to be addressed. I was told that the farthest run for fiber optic was about 35 feet and the illuminator could not be moved. He asked about the self closing gates. I reminded him that Paddock was to supply the wrought iron fence and gate. Lloyd was concerned about the 5’ fence requirement since the wok pedestals were close to the common wall. But since we are in Gilbert it should not be a problem.


Wednesday, October 12th, 2005

Debbie Moles called and said she would contact Poco Verde since no work had been done on the wall.

Tile Tomorrow?

Friday, October 7th, 2005

I met with Lloyd Wilson at 9:30am. I told him about the tile only having one color. He checked the plans and confirmed it was to have a random tile approximately every 3 feet. He said he would have them add it. If I wanted to leave it one solid color tile I could contact the salesman, and they could credit the cost of the second tile. I decided we would go with the original plan due to I want nothing to do with the sales end of it anymore. He said the tile on the raised bases needed to be redone due to a large gap at the top of the bases. Poco Verde was to be out with the wok pots so that could be done. Fiber optic illuminator had to stay on the outside of the pool equipment wall due to fiber length constraints.
3:00pm Debbie Moles called and said Poco Verde would be by to work on wall tomorrow. I told her they had started on it today. They had removed the top 2 rows of bricks on half the wall. She was also under the impression they were to replace the wall, not just straighten the top rows. Lloyd Wilson assured her the wall would be perfect when completed. I also mentioned to her that the tile people had broken off a chunk of deck at the first wok pot base, and that the planter was still not sealed correctly. I had spoken with the man from Poco Verde that is working on the wall, he stated that the planter was all sealed and he was returning tomorrow to tile. I am unsure of what he is going to tile since nothing is correct enough to tile yet.

Week 28

Thursday, October 6th, 2005

Debbie Moles called and said Poco Verde would be by to work on wall soon. Tile on the raised wok pot and pool perimeter started. One color tile only, second color, randomly placed tile, nowhere to be found.


Monday, October 3rd, 2005

I met with Lloyd Wilson at 9:30am. He looked over the deck and checked the planter wall. He agreed that it was crooked.
Debbie Moles called and said there was a work order for the planter wall and heater repair. She stated that she had spoken with Scott Dilliam about the planter wall. She would call Poco Verde tomorrow. The heater manufacturer would need to come out to find the leak in the heater. I asked when the salt system would be installed. She said it was last to be installed.

Week 26

Thursday, September 22nd, 2005

8:00am I called Lloyd Wilson and told him the deck was formed too short, ending before it reached the fireplace extension of the house. He said they go from scale and he would be out to take a look.
9:00am Debbie Moles called to let me know that the fiber optics will be in by Tuesday. I told her also about the 4’ walkway missing, deck short, planter back wall short in height and length, and the planter not sealed enough to keep water from leaching into the pool. She said she would get with Lloyd and let me know.
9:20am Debbie called to say Lloyd would try and be out this afternoon.


Friday, September 16th, 2005

Jillian called to inform us that the pool has been released for decking.


Tuesday, September 13th, 2005

I met with Lloyd Wilson at 8:15am. I showed him the sinking pumps, missing planter foundation, and leaking heater. He would have someone out to fix the heater and see if they can level the pumps. He said Poco Verde would be out today to start on the wall. Poco would paint the wall because they were using standard bricks. He painted where the back planter wall would be located. The fiber optic people came by to look over the project. They will run their conduit, and then after all is done, set the illuminator and controls.
12:00pm, met with Craig from Poco Verde. We discussed painting the wall to match the house since it needed to be painted anyway. They started digging the foundation for the wall and removal of the unneeded foundation already poured. We went over the placement of the rear wall for the planter. The 5’ tall wall meets the existing back wall and extends past the planter, centering the 3’ planter. I gave him a copy of the overview picture. He said they should have the backyard wall done today or tomorrow securing the backyard.


Monday, September 12th, 2005

At 1:30, Bob from Poco called my wife. He said that they can’t find matching bricks for the fence. She told him that he would have to talk with David on his cell number about that.
At 2:00, Nancy Graham from Paddock called. She was returning David’s call from last week. She had talked with Bob about the fence and was told that they would be out tomorrow to start work on the fence, the water fall and the water pot walls. She wasn’t sure how long that would take to complete. But that we couldn’t do any additional work until it was completed. She thought that the fiber optics would be next and then the cool decking and tile.
She then called Lloyd to confirm that Poco was starting tomorrow. Lloyd and Bob are supposed to meet at our house tomorrow to go over the work one more time.
She will call me on Friday to check on the progress.

1:40pm Bob Owens called to inform me that the block would not match the old wall. He said they could get a block that closely matches or paint it to match if needed. I told him that would be fine. He said that he was told that some of the footings were incorrectly poured. He also stated that they would be out on Tuesday to meet with Lloyd Wilson and make sure of the wall and water feature placement. I mentioned that I had been told the wall would have been done much sooner. He said the paperwork was received only a month or so ago and they usually wait till the pool is poured.

9:10am Called Nancy Graham – quality assurance. I left a message about the wall never being completed.
