This is not entirely a woodworking projects although we did put in an l shaped ground level deck. We have talked about keeping the wife happy on here a few times. In 2007 I told her that I wanted to use the cellar as a shop and she said OK, as long as I put in a small koi pond for her. The first photo is the un-used seating area that we started with. The second photo is the first pond ( i call it the puddle) that we put in. After a few months she said that the pond really wasn’t big enough, so her and the boys dug a larger pond. The third photo is the finished project along with a new wall system to contain it. We both got something we wanted and enjoy very much. We all worked hard on this project and it shows.
