Phase 4 of 300

We’ve been working on our backyard since we moved into our house back in May.  We have a big back yard, well it’s big to us and trust me if you mowed it with a push mower you’d think it was big too!

Our first project was a fire pit.  This is also the last fire pit I plan on being involved in.  Does anyone know how hard it is to pull up sod or how heavy it is to move it to point A to point B?   Then go figure, a fire ban was put into place because I’m not sure if it ever rained in Indy this summer.

Next we had a cement patio put in and after that Drew somehow suckered me into helping him install a brick wall around the patio.

Remember how I mentioned we had no room in our 3 car garage?  Well that’s a problem because we needed a place for our adirondack chairs which brings us to phase 4 of 300!  We enclosed the bottom of our deck.  (Notice all the electrical outlets, Drew’s got big plans for them!)

The reason I say we have 300 phases is because we virtually have no landscaping in the front or backyard.  A few months we had a landscaping plan made for our yard.  It’s amazing but in order to do it we’re definitely going to have to break up the project in many many phases.

Well that’s it for this week, I hope you all have a fun weekend!  Please stop by on Sunday and link up your furniture and design projects to Sweet Skills Sunday!

  1. You are some impressive DIYers. Your projects look amazing and so welcoming. The fire pit area says come on in and sit a spell and let’s chat while watching the fire. That idea to close in the deck for the chairs is a winner with its finished look.

    • Thanks for the nice comment and for visiting! I hope you’ll come back!
