We are starting on a near total backyard makeover. To give a little history, the original fiberglass pool and decking was installed in 1984. We have decided to remove it and have a shotcrete pool installed. Prior to the pool demo we had a cedar post and beam patio covering built. I will include pictures of the progress so far and hope to post many more to document the process. The patio originally had an arbor made from treated pine that had been in placed for about 25 years. It lasted beyond it's expected time.
