    This project took us about a month and a half and entailed many design/build constraints. I will post some before/after shots over the next few days as time allows. Hope you guys like 'em, because it worked me over! DSC_0068[1].JPG

    Ha Ha. Not a trailer hitch. Not exactly any old box... It is the barbeque/ fire place you can barely see in the small before pictures in the middle of the yard. It was built in 1938 and had started deteriorating. We the fire box restored (new angle iron where the legs had rusted and door hinges refurbished to allow access into wood box) and placed it in a fire brick enclosure on a separate footer and built the wall around it. The client used it four times in five days! We planted their favorite herbs around the new fire box so they could season with fresh flavors as they cook...
    Thanks for looking!
    The picture with the rain barrel behind the wall (in case anybody was wondering) was a problematic area where water was flooding the little storage area to the left. We placed a rain barrel below the gutter (yet to be tied in to rain barrel) to catch water from the roof. We piped the outlet through galvanized steel into the red valve you see. Below the red valve to the left is a small grate (once part of the grill aka "box") that releases water taken in by a perf pipe we installed along the foundation of the house. The upper, square steel pipe (to the top right of the the red valve) is piped into the overflow spigot from the rainbarrel. These three outlets allow water to pass through the wall causing no structural damage. They are released into the gravel bed at the foot of the wall which is the mouth for another perf pipe that runs through the new lawn area, beneath the lower footer, and into another drainage system that is going to fuel a future rain garden in phase 2 or 3 of this project.
    Thanks again for looking!
