Fortunately, it looks like I will be able to make the show... my inheritance will come in right around the beginning of the month.
I have all these ideas for the back patio with the soon-to-be hot tub area... but I'm not certain I know how to put them into practice, exactly. Might hire a carpenter, or perhaps go to the library and see if they have any good books on such things.
Where's Ground Force when you need them?!!
