    I haven't been takin' pics throughout the process, but this is where I'm at right now....had I been takin' pics, they'd have been boring. But this is where I'm at with the yard work. I built the entire fence and the double gate, got the pad taken down a couple inches, framed up with 2x8, already have the base spread out, now I have to spread out the top layer, and also get the rest of the soil spread (and account for drainage). Still need to trim the posts on the fence, and take care of all that last minute, finishing touches stuff before I can say I'm completely finished with the outside. I've scheduled sod to be delivered and layed next Wednesday, so - weather permitting - this time next week, I'll finally have a finished yard. It's because of the weather that it's taken so long to get this far. Can't wait 'till its all finished.

    Yep.... I initially thought about extending the stone all the way to the back fence to have room for a (future purchase of a) bumper pull trailer, but when I buy a trailer, I'm gonna get a gooseneck, and that wouldn't fit anywhere. Plus, I wanted to keep as much grass back there as I could, so the dog would have something to play in.... :D
