It's a patio!

We have been working on home improvements for a while, most recently was the demolition of our old rotting deck and its replacement with a patio and a retaining wall to change the water flow off the hill behind our house (the cause of said rot). This process started last October (!) and the end is now in sight. :-) I have some of the older photos of the progress in a Picasa web album (http://picasaweb.google.com/lulalaney/DeckToPatio20082009#). Below I have some of the more recent photos.
More tomorrow. I'm too tired just looking at this to write more tonight!


  1. Wow! That is one beautiful place to sit Wilma.

  2. Hi Wilma. You are a very lucky lady living there. You have made me green with envy. You must have a remendous amount of wildlife around your home. Enjoy your patio sweetheart.

  3. Keith and Ken,

    We were very lucky to have found this place. It backs up to a wooded ridge and there is still active farmland around us. There are some new housing development too, but they are mostly screened from our view in summer.
