Due to a septic tank issue, we had to dig up part of our back deck. That’s okay because I didn’t like that section and I really wanted a bigger firepit.
In less than 2 days, we managed to level the section, put down a bluestone patio, build a firepit, and fill it in with crushed stone. For a two person crew, we managed quite a bit! Most of the time was spent on leveling stones. At one point, I worked half an hour on leveling one stone. He and I are no longer in love, but I’m happy to step on him.
Lessons learned? Pick a cooler day. Double check the number of stones. And don’t forget to have fun!
I am awaiting the official pit party!
