New Patio

When we moved in here last year we didnt realise that our patio was not so great. After a few heavy rains we realised that it wasnt constructed right and leaked. We looked at a couple of different options, tried a bit of mending, but in the end we realised it was best to replace it – and in doing that, we could extend it further to give us more undercover area. We still have to dig up the grass area and concrete out to the end of the patio, but other than that – its all done! You can see the excitement of the girls in the last few photos.
