Actually I have had more of a vision, than a dream~.
Our back yard area has always been a bit of confusion as to what to do near our firepit area.
We love to entertain, and often wind up on our upper deck. Which is great, however, when you start getting into more people, let's say more than 8, we are kinda clustered on the deck.
When we go near the firepit area, there is very little comfort and seating for everyone.
I can't tell you how many times one of us have slipped on the pine needles. Although, cozy, and have served the purpose for the 5 years we have lived here, it is time to step it up a notch.
This morning at 7:00 they started...
Here is a little of what I envision...
This looks dreamy!~
and a nice hard decorative surface would be nice too...
Wish us luck!~
Sometimes my visions turn out, and sometimes NOT!~
This is a BIG project. I was surprised Mike was on board right away.
Since we have lived in our home, we have made very little improvements, as the home was new and we have not had to, which is a blessing. I shopped around, did my homework, and knew what costs should be for a project like this, ie...price per square foot etc. I checked out the business with the BBB, got permits, etc.
ALWAYS, check out the BBB before you sign on with a company. I can't tell you how many people I know, have gotten taken, or a bad job done because they did not do their homework.
Have a wonderful day.
NEWBIE party still going on
