Our Patio :: Progress Photos

Hope you're having a great week so far. It's been a hectic week for us. The kids are back to school. I kept saying this but I still can't believe our little girl is off to first grade! Where did the time go? She is doing so well adjusting to the new school. I teared up a little on her first day. My husband has been working like a beast on the patio. It's been 5 weeks. The patio is nowhere near finished but we're hoping to wrap things up before the holiday weekend. We're hosting a cookout with friends and family. It's a bigger job than we anticipated. Some tasks are very tedious. He has been working around the clock to get things done. He also takes the time to do it right the first time. I may be biased but I am very impressed with how well the pergola turned out. I know my husband can build things but that pergola is solid. It's built to last! I am very fortunate to marry a handyman. Other than pluming and electric, this man can build/fix anything. I can't wait to see it all come together!
What's left to do:
- Install tile flooring for the covered porch 
- Put in granite countertop for the bar area 
- Build the sitting wall around the firepit 
- The contractors will take care of all lighting and electrical needs
- We purchased this swing set for the little one and that needs to be put together as well.

Yikes! There is still a lot of work to be done. Below are a few progress photos. I probably won't do another update until everything is done and ready for the big reveal. Have a great weekend, everyone!

    1. That’s exciting! 4-6 is my favorite age range. Best of luck to your little one :)
