The area of the property Derek decided to built the patio. Used to be an old swimming pool.
LOTS of sand.
Laying out the pattern.
Cutting brick to fit the smaller spaces.
Building the firepit and sweeping in the last sand.
A few donated chairs and the vets are ready to BBQ!
Derek is finishing up with the last few merit badges required for his Eagle Scout award. This summer he started his project, which was making an outdoor BBQ patio for the local Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) unit. He got various businesses and individuals to help him fund and donate the project. He just finished the patio after many months of sweat, labor and time. It was exhausting and we are so proud of him! What a difference between the first picture and last, huh?
