We are supposed to dig on January 12 so I figured I would start a build thread to document everything here. I posted a thread back at the end of the summer with a general design and asked for a little bit of input. Made a few small changes based on some input from here which is much appreciated.
Here is the design rendering and a few photos of my mostly blank slate of a back yard. The two trees in the middle of the yard will be coming out next week prior to the build. About the only thing not right in the rendering is the bottom of the step/seating area. It will have a gradual slope to the deeper depth so we don't have a huge drop off on that bottom step as shown.
Can't wait to see it all come together. Still have to make a few selections. Haven't yet made a final decision on tile color or plaster color. Right now the front runners are either Steel Blue or a 9/1 mix of French Gray/Onyx Diamondbrite. Anyone have any photos of Steel Blue? My builder hasn't done one and I can only find a few photos online which look awesome but I don't know if I'm willing to take a chance without seeing it in person.
Oh and my TF100 arrived in the mail yesterday so I am ready to go.
