Project 'Nothin Special'

Some pics of a little project in 'Never Satisified's Neck of the Woods! In New Windsor MD, we're building a nice, partially raised paver patio, with steps, retaining walls, seat walls, landscape lighting, and an outdoor kitchen.

yeah, spa and decking.

Handrails are required on the steps. However, they don't want them. Which means a contractor must cover his tail when this happens. The contract has an individual paragragh that states something along the lines of, "handrails and safety rails to be furnished installed by others".

nice improvement on that residence, should look good all done..

yea got to always be sure to clearly state something about the handrails to cover your ass...no one wants them 99% of the time and there is a few ways around it depending on design or the help of them having a half decent carpenter or whatever...

It's Nicolock's Olde Towne Tumbled pavers. Which is basically a 4 piece combo.

Looks good. Best thing about that install (deposit check clearing is actually the best thing) is the easy access. I savor installs like that. Easy in, easy out. Just curious, how big is that spa. Is it going to fit in fairly snug, or will there be room on the sides?
