Week 7. That means there’s only one week left until reveal day!
I kept meaning to post for Week 6 last week but I’ve been working non-stop either for my job or on this patio and I just didn’t get around to it. When we last left off, we had finished our deck extension and I had started limewashing the brick exterior of our house.
I don’t want to give too much away (although if you follow me on Instagram you’ve already seen a few sneak peeks in stories and on my feed), but we have made a whole lot of progress over the last couple of weeks.
I finished limewashing the brick, we finished all of the concrete work and spread most of the gravel, Kyle built an outdoor sofa, we started building stairs from the walkway to the patio, and we built a table out of leftover decking.
We were hoping to finish the stairs from the walkway to the patio over the weekend but unfortunately Home Depot was out of the lumber we needed.
It looks like an entirely different property back here and I cannot wait to finish up and show you guys the whole space!
Going into the final week, here’s what we need to do:
- Finish building stairs
- Build planter
- Finish spreading gravel
- Build outdoor chairs
- Sand/stain stairs
- Sand/stain deck
- Sand/stain table
- Sand/stain sofa
- Sand/stain chairs
- Stain planter
- Limewash garage stairs
- Clean pavers
- Clean out gutters
- Hang lights
- Place furniture
It’s not a terrible list but I was hoping to have most of the staining done already. Unfortunately, the weather has not been great this week but it’s looking clear for the weekend so hopefully it stays that way so we can finish strong and take some photos before more rain moves in!
