Very Important Update…


Two days ago, the funds that were raised up to this point, were transfered to bank account.  Today, I had a phone call with "Master Spas", the therapy pool manufacturer.  On this phone call I had to make a payment for the therapy pool.  Previously I had to make a down payment, but now with this remaining balance paid, we have an arrival date for the therapy pool on August 27th.

I had to use one credit card, then it was filled up, so then I had to put the remaining balance on another card.

Yes, this is fantastic, and I am very excited!!  However, we still have to raise the remaining $5,709 for the carpenter's materials and labor for the construction on the Enclosure Room for the pool.

So far the carpenter performed the electrical work and built the level foundation for the therapy pool to rest on.  Next the pool has to arrive, be put into place, the we'll have to cover it up so the carpenter can do the construction for the Enclosure Room.

After the carpenter is done with the construction, then it will be time to finally swim, and start rebuilding muscles and kicking atrophy to the curb.

So, as I stated earlier in this post, there is ONLY $5,709 left to go.  These are the remaining funds for the Enclosure Room.  Do you think it's possible that we'll be able to meet this goal within 2 weeks?

Electrical Work for therapy pool…

In order to make preparations for when I’m able to eventaully get the therapy pool, the manufacturer has some electrical requirements that are needed for the therapy pool's pumps, filters and heaters. These are the pictures of the what the contractor performed on July 12, 2913

Therapy Pool Transaction…

Ok everybody, here's another update.  Below is a copy of the email that I've received back from my representative Laura from Master Spas about the pool purchase.

They have to get the pool ready and prepared for shipping, then the therapy pool will ship and probably arrive within 3 weeks.

I have a contractor that is going to perform the electrical requirements for the house's main breaker box.  After the pool is in place inside the third garage bay at my parent's house, the contractor will then come back and start the renovation of the garage bay, adding extra walls, insulation and a small HVAC system to be able to regulate them temps in the Enclosure bay of the garage.

So the therapy pool is in the process and will be here soon.  All the funds remaining to be raised are the Final $6,571 for the contractor to be able to perform the construction for the Therapy Pool's Enclosure Room.

We're so close!!  I know that we'll meet the goal with your help.

A Pool Process Update…

So we’re still trying to raise enough funds for both the enclosure for the therapy pool and therapy pool itself. We’re at $22,554, so there’s about $7K left to go. We’re come so far, and we’re so close, just a little left to go. With your help, I know we can do this.

After talking about the possibility of having to move in with my parents one day, we’ve decided to have the pool installed at my parent’s house. This seemed like the most logical choice because otherwise I would possibly have to move the pool at the later date in the future, and would be wasting the money on the enclosure at my house if I had to move it.

Other than the location changing, the plans remain the same to have the therapy pool and it’s enclosure. Access to the pool isn’t an issue, because my parent only live like 14 miles down the road. And since at least one of my parents drive by my house everyday, it’s not a problem for them to take me back to their house for use of the therapy pool each day.

Currently we’ve been talking with Representative for the pool company, figuring out what’s available for the very near future. I’ve explained to her about how we’re trying to
