God bless 'em

We're having a patio built in the backyard and these guys have my respect. No way could we have done this as a DIY project and had such results.

That is all.

You're not kidding!! We had a paver stone patio put in the summer before last. At first, it seemed like it might be a DIY project. But, at 17'x44', I'm really glad we paid someone!

Ya, its sad nowdays with construction basicaly prebuilt, cookie-cutter homes of prefabbed walls, trusses, and stucco. Not as many true artisans around anymore, and thats exactaly what a good mason/bricklayer/tile setter is.

That's definately Houston "area". Other than the nice stonework that could be my Granparent's backyard. :)

Nice job. :thumb: I love stone and love craftsmanship.

No hot tub - just a firepit. Next summer we may add on an outdoor kitchen but this was phase 1 :D

Now that I look at it from that perspective, it is hard to really tell that its a firepit unless you know what you are looking for.

LTL, we looked at pavers at first, but Texas soil shifts so much that we needed a concrete base. Stone was the only way to go. No way could we have done this ourselves.

You mean "sand" right? ;) (I constantly tease my parents about this)
