Father's day in the books

Well, another uneventful holiday round these parts. Erin and I are somewhat resolved to just buck the system and not celebrate forced holidays. I think we agreed to celebrate some sort of a joint parental holiday on our own next year. At any rate, spent most of the weekend working on the patio. More money. More work. I need a vacation.

Here is how we are looking...

One more for perspective:

I don't recall exactly when we started the project, Erin would know. I think it has been about a month. Cost is sitting at about $1000. That is more than we had wanted to spend, but it will be worth it in the long run. The room itself is about 10ft x 25ft. Still to do is the final sealing of random holes and the installation of a sump pump. Our lot is slanted in such a way that on heavy rains the patio turns into a lake. A sump pump is the easiest and least expensive way to fix the problem.

Oh, there is furniture, lighting, and electrical to tend to as well. Knew I was forgetting something.

So there you have it. Told you guys I would get some pictures up eventually.
