Patios poured!

Weather is always a factor during construction. Fortunately the only thing that was affected by weather was the pouring of the concrete. The issue was more of having the heavy truck pull through the yard and leave deep ruts after the rainfall we have had. They were here by 7:00 this morning and started right to work. We now have some great patio spaces that I look forward to turning into some great outdoor rooms.

As an extra we had them pour a 6 foot circle that will be circled with brick for our little bistro table. A nice little spot at the front to sit with coffee. We have to finish putting the trellises together on the brick wall. The Carolina Jasmine has really taken off since Mothers' Day!

We also chose paint colors. When we visited Don's home in the Parade of Homes we fell in love with the color that the family room was painted. Don's wife Annette did a super job on colors in that house! It was Sherwin William's Silvermist that we really liked. It looked gray, then blue, then green...just pretty! Mom chose it for her room, closet and bathroom. We are sticking with the neutral color that is in our house already for the remainder of the addition.
