Over the years of living in our house i've heard him tell of many "ideas" he had. Knocking out walls, putting walls up, adding a hot tub, etc etc. A lot of dreaming. This idea actually sounded attainable with out limited experience of construction.
He showed me a video he had found online and the whole idea sounded amazing. We had been wanting to do something for our yard and to create a better spot for us to enjoy our yard. I don't think that either of us knew that this "easy" project would be as much work as it was!
First step was digging. We didn't have a bobcat to help. It was all shovel. Tyler said that we had to dig deep because we needed to do layer of rock and a layer of sand.
We hired a great kid from our church to help us. He was awesome. I tried helping out there with Ty and i just wasn't a good fit for us to work together. I think one of my shovel fills was 1/4 of one of Tylers. I think i did more harm then good!
Mike and Shelby's family stayed with us for a few weeks while waiting to close on their house. Mike was awesome to help Tyler with this project. We owe them help on a porch!
