backyard patio redo

We just recently spiffed up the back patio. We already had a small concrete slab. Jeremy started pricing the cost to extend the concrete and lay flagstone himself. Then when that seemed high, he started researching pouring and stamping concrete himself. I know he could have done any of it. He can build, fix, create just about anything as long as he has the nifty internet to help him. But the time it would take . . . and he's not good about asking anyone for help. So we figure that sometimes the sacrifice of money is well worth not having to sacrifice the time. We quickly decided to get some estimates to have the work done for us. And in a short 6 days of work it was completed. And now our little backyard is my favorite room of the house. :)
Here is where we began.We have one more finishing touch, but for the most part this is the compelted project.
