Larry's Private Patio Area now useable.

We are getting close to finishing up Larry's Private Patio Area, actually now useable if he wants. We still have a few things to do to finish making it finished. Bringing in some pots with plants that will go behind the water feature and as you come into the patio. 
We are waiting to the logs that will be in the Gas fired Fire Pit, and some lighting to do for those late evenings of relaxing with friends and family.
Here's a video of the area we have been working on. I hope you like it and tell others what I can do as a builder with a little time and creativity.

Working on the Water Feature

There's nothing like the sound of water in a private place. It takes the mind to a different place, and this is what we are hoping for with this water feature. To feel like we are some where else to relax and rejuvenate our selves from the day of being busy with life and what it brings us.
Here are a few picture of where we are going to make our water feature. Larry will also be able to hear it from his bedroom we think. We'll see.


 This is the water feature we will be using.
This is the base work.

Trellis Paint Highting

When I built the trellis at Larry's I knew the there was alot of Autum Red color we had painted. It has held up well since I constructed it, and the look of the front of the home changed for the better for sure.
Now that the plantings are get older and some size of the plants have gotten bigger things are looking great. The lavender plants are just hug, standing almost 4 ft. and looking sweet. With the new private patio area, the colors we are using  just need to be incorprated into what we have already done.

So using the color we painted the patio fence I am also using it to highlight the post and trellis ears that were only Autum Red before but now add deminsion to the trellis with the added color.
Here are a few pictures of the new look.

The Autum Red color will continue to the patio area tieing the two together.
There has been quit a few people pointing at the trellis art top of the privacy fence. It is called "Bird feet". 100% maintainance free aluminum lazor art.
Something that on person has yet in Anacortes other than Larry.
I'm sure there will be others that will want this kind of thing for there home, It's classy for sure.
