    ...well, almost.
    Just a bit more landscaping to do.
    As some of you know, I posted some pics awhile back of the unfinished project. I did everything myself except for the concrete flat work (deck, steps, mow-strip). I did the block work, gas fire pit, fencing, sprinkler system (90% micro-sprinklers) and landscaping. The deck is roughly 465sf.
    A few more plants and some malibu lighting and I'll be done.

    Cam, yes it is. I ran a direct line off the gas meter which is along side my house. We run it 3-4 times a week for 1-2 hours at a time and our gas bill only went up $11.00. Very inexpensive.

    No photo-shop here. All natural blue sky and sunshine. It's like that most of the year 'round these parts.
    Thanks for the comments!

    Beautiful work, Ron. We had brickwork landscaping and a sprinkler system professionally installed a couple of years ago. Your work could easily pass as professionally designed and installed. I am very impressed.
