First, let me say that the roof isn’t done on our patio yet. We are going to use some clear corrugated product that works like the fiberglass roofing but it’s not actually fiberglass that we’re going to use. It’s a vinyl material that is supposed to be better. We’ll see how that works out!
The part that we are doing ourselves is just the floor part of the patio. As you can see by the photos, there is no floor. There was a couple of days ago but we tore up all the brick and block that was there and we will be reusing those to create a new floor. It’s going to be alot longer and wider. Actually it’s going to be the same size as the roof so we’ll have quite a bit of space to entertain and enjoy.
Some of this area that is going to be part of the floor was a rock bed and so we’ve been having to dig up all those rocks and we’ve ran into a TON of big roots!! So, things haven’t been going as easy as we’d hoped it would.
These photos were taken after the patio flooring was taken up (I know I should have taken photos of before) and I’ll post more pictures as the process moves along. We’ll be having tiny crushed gravel delivered in the next day or so I hope and we will be using that as the foundation that the bricks and patio blocks will be setting on. I’m completely open to any and all tips or advice that you have to offer since this is our first time doing anything like this. I’m hoping the weather stays pretty all week so we can continue to work while my husband is on vacation. I hope you all enjoy your week too 🙂
