Well as you can see by the photos above - the slab has been laid! It was good to be able to really get an idea of how much (or should I say, how little) backyard we have. Good thing we don't want to raise sheep and chickens. We are sure the dogs will have enough room anyway, as they have a much smaller area now to run around in.
Frame starts middle of the week hopefully. Will update on Friday ... so until then .... farewell.
