    Complete after 8 months!

    If someone says "go ahead and do it all yourself".. run. This entire project was grass last September, but now is about done except for finishing touches and garden growing. I had a brotherinlaw who would show up here and there and say, "Good. Your next step is to...". But I learned how to run an excavator and stamp concrete and ... and... There are a number of things I would do differently now, but I am happy with the overall result.

    A few things of note from the build: I put in umbrella sleeves with caps here and there around the deck. I put solar in the concrete. I ran gas lines for tiki torches around parameter gardens - I wish I could find these for cheaper that look this nice! The armor stone was huge and over the weight limit of my forklift which made it fun.

    I still have to put in some more river rock along the sides, more planting, build a bench/box to cover the plumbing, install my gas tiki torches, outdoor kitchen or bar, cleanup the yard and a few other odds and ends. BUT the kids are swimming which is what counts!











    And thanks everyone in this forum! I have learned so much already and on my way to running BBB!
    Cheers!

    You are telling me! I plan on building a big bench to hide all the plumbing across most of the wall, and putting a back rest, and putting a higher up piece with pegs for towels, and painting the door... but I don't really have a choice about what's left. I should just always take photos from the other direction!

    Wow, that is totally awesome!

    It may have been a long time coming and lots of work, but I think you have something there that will give you lots and lots of enjoyment, very nicely done.

    I hope ours ends up half that nice.

    Cheers
