« Part 1: Planning and Building Part 2 of Pam Wants a Patio series Part 3: Phase 3: Make’n it purty »

So I was just reviewing my little world here at Lumber Jocks only to see that I’ve not added the next phases of this blog. I actually found the write up I created two years ago still on my computer for this phase and phase 3 – tough getting old. The things we forget.

Phase 2 of the Patio was to bring in blocks to form the floor, Pam chose 16X16 patio blocks. This was by far the most aggravating phase of the project. I talked to people, read up a little and watched some videos on line. I came to the conclusions… “they all lie!” They make it sound or look sooooo easy. My Foot!

Aggravating, Frustrating, Maddening, Excruciating – now those are some accurate descriptive words. And this was a small patio – I only had to put 28 of these 16×16 blocks in place.

But finally it came together and (for the most part) level!

Time for a cigar and an adult beverage!! Do I look tired??

Phase 2 complete!
