this is a patio i did last summer, i went by here the other week and took pics. homeowners still very happy!! we built this one a couple months ago. i do NOT like the steps but thats how the homeowner wanted them so thats what he got. overall a great job!! this one is a monster. took alot of time on the corners because we did not have corner block. overall looks great though. it took us about 2 weeks on this job!! this one was real fun job, it was easy and looks great, i think it took us 4 days to build! i like this one alot because you cant see either end from wherever you are at.
