Ding Dong the yard is done!

The yard is done! OK, almost done. We still have to get some storage closet things and put down the sod (which will have to wait until the cooler month of September). But, we have a fence and a kick-ass patio! It was finished on Saturday and we had a great time hanging out there Sunday morning. Then it rained and ruined my chance to take some good final pictures. That will have to wait until later.

Though this was the major step, there are still a few things left until the yard work is completed:

- Replace floor boards and railing on deck (October)
- build lattice cover for air conditioning unit
- make a storage section
- lay sod (September)
- flower boxes (September)
- waterproof and paint (late October for fence and stairs/late March for deck boards)

The guys who were working on the fence and patio were amazed by the transformation and noted our yard looks twice the size of our neighbors (though it is the same).

Hopefully I will have some pics tomorrow or tonight!
