Very nice landscaping job. I bet the neighbors with swimming pools are jealous of you now. Great photos as well.

Your yard and landscaping look great Mike. It looks so much different than when you just completed it. I like that big rock on the left side of the oven. Is that a peach tree to the right?

I really like the lighting around your patio too. Looks like a great place to enjoy a pizza and a glass of wine, just like your pic.

And those pizza's! The crust looks nicely risen and colored. I saw your pics of the rolled flank steak too. Wasn't fun to fun to grill in the wfo?

Well done!
-Dino

Hey there Mike! That looks super fantastic!

It's great to see your project progress as it has. We've just received our first cool front in FL. today; headed out to my wood guy to stock up as we speak.

Great job on everything!

Thanks for the compliments! Dino, yep, we put a peach tree on either side of the oven. We were inspired by your lemon tree photos. This is as close as we get in Michigan!

Beautiful work and thank you for being so diligent with your posts!
Because of our climate, did you pour footings below the frontline or did you just do the slab on grade? How is the slab handling our freeze thaw cycles?

I dug below the frost line (48 inches) for a foundation below the slab. I think their are photos early in the thread. Zero problems with frost heave so far.
