Well Done!

After a couple of weeks of rain it ended sometime this morning and the guys showed up to work in a little mud. This new walkway is flagstone and decomposed granite. This crew only needs to show up one more time for a few tweaks and cleanup then they are finished.

Thanks! Not much more to go until it's finished.

Still trying to get that past the wife. That woman spends too much time out there for me to get any practical ideas past her.

Shouldn't be long now. I'm still waiting on the smoker doors so I can get at least one practice cook in.

That's a good idea! Always enjoyed that Farmersville area. Wished I had bought some ground there back in the early 90s when they were selling it for that little birdie price.

So far on the list:

Argentine grill w/rotisserie
Propane grill
Small fridge
Sink
Double burner hot plate

That little initial list just grew and grew didn't it??
But, you'll get so much enjoyment out of it it will be worth it, and you deserve it as well.

It certainly did. I did loose the fridge, but so far that's not been a big deal. Ya know, you get started on these things and see the larger potential and it's hard to pull back on the reins. Thanks, but I'm not so sure I deserve it but the wife certainly does.

I've invited the pergola back because the wife decided she wants an old metal swing that's been in her family for at least three generations hung by the fire pit. He will also hang a sliding barn door at the south entry that we can close to block the north wind from the back door. Hopefully, he'll get started on that tomorrow. My landscaper has been in Florida cutting trees for a couple weeks and is now back working on his part. Heck, it may be summer again before this job is 100% complete. :shock:

A couple of things almost completed today. The sliding door separates the kitchen from the carport which is a wind tunnel from the north or south. It needs a little channel at the bottom to keep the door from being blown out at the bottom. The pergola is for a two person swing that's been in the wife's family for a couple or three generations. Waiting on hardware to come in to hang it. It's just off the fire pit under the oak tree.
