So tomorrow kind of starts the process. Tree trimming. Got the initial plans done, some of it is liquid (no, not a pool). They have to get some engineering done for the 2 awnings/gazebos/shade structures - whatever the hell they are called. Then permits. Demo hopefully will start in a week or 2. Then the liquid part, playing with spray paint and the layout. Grading, layout the slab for the bbq area and placement of the L bbq island. Dig footings for the island and posts. Trenches for gas line, electrical, water and cable.
It's about to get real. Got boxes of bbq and island stuff in the garage, it will be nice to get the space back.
