Outdoor Projects (Sept 2009 – Nov 2010)

February 27th, 2011

We had 3 large projects that we wanted to complete in our backyard.

The first is the paver patio. It was NOT even. We tore out all the pavers and added lots and lots and lots of sand and rock. Scott got to add a retaining wall… His favorite project. Our neighbor, OB, brought home a bobcat to help us with all the sand and rock. OB, also, evened out the whole base. It would have taken us forever. Then, we started laying pavers. Scott and I were both a little more precise than necessary. We would place a paver and level, place a paver and level, and it took forever. But, it is done and looking good!

The second was a shed. We need a place to store some of our lawn equipment and outdoor items. This project all started when I asked for a few small projects to be completed for my birthday. (For the record, that light switch and door stop have NOT been replaced.)


Scott built this from scratch... Very sturdy!!

This is the 3rd of 3 projects that we were hoping to finish this year. The weather held out long enough for us to finish the main part of deck. We will need to finish the steps and railings, but the largest part is done.

Gavin likes to run all over the deck.
