Step down, Step up…
Over the last few weeks we have been working hard constructing the end part of the top deck and the steps down to what was the slopey bank down to our pool area, its drop was quite steep so the process involved digging out lots of earth to get each one level, then building mini walls, pointing them and adding all the decking. Finally we had to finish the walls and top them with terracotta tiles.
Here’s the process so far…
The stone the guys are moving used to be one of the mantels from our old kitchen windows, now it’s the feature stone on the top step.
They are taking shape, kev has installed power for lighting.
Jut the corner of the wall to finish and plants to add.
And hers the finished wall with tiles. The chairs were bought from our local Brocante market for €20.
It’s a great spot to sit under the shade and enjoy the view. Liz and Tom our two new palms take pride of place on the steps.
The view from the top.
And here’s Kevs lights.
Now we have to finish the other end of the pool area, no rest for the wicked!!!
