Back Yard - Long Term Plans


video


Here's the long-term plans for our backyard.  The very back yard would be for a garden, but we want to keep it more formal and organized.  This will be a multi-year project starting first with installing the pavers and garden beds.  Picket fence and a garden shed will be later than sooner.




The area between the house and garage has an all too small patio that one day I want to expand with a new patio and pergola.  I would like a six-post pergola and want to use salvaged tapered columns which finding could be difficult.








Desk

We now have the desk that matches the dining room table and buffet. These three pieces have been part of the house for 60+ years.
