I'm really excited today because Jeff and I finally agreed on the major components of the backyard plan. Finally. Until last evening, we had very different ideas about where the table and BBQ should go. And it seemed this disagreement held up other big decisions...
Well, we finally have a plan. This is unlikely to get built this year, but other stuff can go in around it now.
Today I threw together a quick design for a pergola. There will be changes, because I didn't allow for anything like hardware, etc. It was really the look I was trying to figure out as I wanted to incorporate a number of details from our house's architecture, especially the brackets.
As for the garage, here is where it is at. It looks done, but the back side of the roof still needs shingles and the guys assembled the garage door panels in the wrong order, so they'll have to fix that too. Poor Tim.
