I haven't made any changes yet to the site, I've been distracted with other projects around the house. I browse and research while I'm at the gym looking for inspiration though. I've made a few changes. I've set up a SSL and some HTML tweaking. More to come. After graduation in August, I began working on a concrete patio in the backyard. I'm sure this will bog down the post on loading adding all these photos, but I'll fix that.
Measuring things out.
Busted up the old "patio".
Built the frame and started digging footings. This was a dry, hot August/September. My timing was terrible.
I dug pier holes for the pergola and brick smoker I will be adding later when the weather is warmer.
Rebar all laid out, tied and sitting fancy, waiting for concrete.
Finally poured, colored, stamped, cured, and rinsed off.
This is similar to how I plan to add a smoker in one corner. http://m.instructables.com/id/Brick-Barbeque/
