For years Osto and I have talked about ripping the old deck off the back and putting in something new. First is was a new deck, then we decided last year it would be a cement slab. I designed a rounded patio with a fire ring and this week our crew went to work on the installation. They poured it on Friday and will be back next week to add stairs and finish it off. I can't wait for our first party next weekend on the new patio!
