Time to extend the patio with another slab of concrete!
|The boys watching the forms being put in.|
The backyard seemed a really good place to start since it's summer and all. I've had a lot of dreams for this backyard, and this has been the first step in making this a place for us to enjoy hanging out as a family.
|We had to bring in a yard of gravel for more fill. This is Sat. morning before everyone arrived.|
|This was the most intense part because time is of the essence once that concrete is mixed! I could tell that hubby was a little stressed! This mobil mix place truck is great because they mix exactly what you need.|
When it was all poured they spent a few hours smoothing it over, and waiting for it to harden a little more. Everyone was finally able to leave at about 12pm. It looks beautiful! We are so excited to have this extra patio space! I was beat after it all, and I didn't even have to move any concrete. It was a lot of mental exhaustion though.
