Patio Extension and Fire Pit
After a couple months of weather issues, employee complications and vehicle maintenance, our concrete contractor is just about finished with our back yard patio extension! We started this project well before I ever even started talking to my new employer. So we're sad that a project we put in place for our future enjoyment will have to be loved by someone else now... But we are happily taking advantage of the completed work while we can.
We've poured a new concrete slab, surrounded by stone walls, which turned out so great. In the center is a fully functional gas fire pit, which only requires the small turn of a knob to turn on and light a fire! In the evenings, the neighborhood is so nice and quiet. Having a drink in our patio chairs with the fire going has been so magical.
Maybe some day we'll find a similar spot out in California that we can love just as much.
