Since the fire pit area is raised with steps, the kids think it's a stage! And even better are the two raised tables on the benches. So when I walked outside, I found them doing the whip and nae nae like this...
It doesn't look like it, but we are getting close. The brick still needs to be treated to make it lighter, and the bench will be regular cement color- the white is just a treatment they put it on it. And of course we need trees, lots of them, to cover up the hideous block wall. I'm told this will all be completed within the next few weeks!
We made the final decisions yesterday (appliances, lighting, tree/shrub selection, ground cover, etc.), and our contractor says everything goes fast now!
The water line tile is in. It looks boring, but I love it.
We have more concrete forms, but nothing exciting. It seems like a lot is waiting on this next concrete pour, and I have no idea when that's happening because we couldn't decide on a kitchen layout so that's not even formed yet.
The fire pit seating looks basically done, I think?
We have the coping and deck jets all set, and the brick is grouted...
