We spent Thanksgiving in Boston and we knew our only chance of finishing the patio before snow was to get it done before our trip. After slower-than-we'd-hoped progress over the weekend, Nick ended up taking a day off to cut brick. He spent 6 solid hours cutting brick, but the results were definitely worth it.
All that's left to do is raise a couple bricks (he ran out of sand at the end and we had a commitment that night), cut two more bricks and then sweep sand between the cracks. I've been hoping we'd have one last day of decent temperatures, but the yard is now covered in snow and our high today was 7 degrees.
So, our patio might look just like this until Spring.
Spring is coming, right guys?
(The little area on the right hand side is for our grill. We wanted it on the patio but not in the way of the table. That little spot should work perfectly!)
