new patio

Project by Bob42 posted 01-24-2011 07:23 AM 3636 views 1 time favorited 11 comments Add to Favorites Watch

This is the new patio i made this summer. It took all summer by myself. 1400 sq. ft. concrete pavers, 6” concrete dust base compacted multiple times. I installed new pipe for a natural gas bbq and fire pit. No more tanks to be refilled!!!! I also installed electric and lines for sprinklers as well as xtra spare lines for future use. The pictures are not the best and it needs to be landscaped this spring. I am thinking of adding on a tiki bar next to the fire pit.

This is the first project i added to this site because it’s hard to keep up with this and LJ’s.

Very nice. Now you just need some railings and your set.

There is a side patio that I didn’t show that has the bbq.
My wife says the same thing. We are waiting for the railings because we need to do the siding and I want to install overhangs over both doors and will include it then.

I used Capital concrete pavers, the color is Riverbed. They are about 8000 psi. Riverbed is made up of three colors and three sizes. You need to stop often to plan the next color and size paver. It took a long time because is used s random pattern and wanted to stagger the seams and did the job by myself.

What a great idea. I would love a bbq pit that I don’t have to change tanks with… I just need to do this.

Great job. That patio looks like a fantastic area to hold gatherings.
