Patio work done...for now

Hubby has been busy working on our patio since we arrived down south, two weeks ago.
 He has now completed his work for this year. 
We still have finishing touches, but we'll leave that for another year.
When we purchased our park model in the fall, we had two sheds, one was so close to the trailer that there was not enough room for stairs at the back door.
Almost directly behind that shed was shed #2. 
In the fall hubby made a half shed out of it. 
Here is the floor that he needed to take up to make our patio.
 In half a day he had the old floor torn up,
 The next thing he had to do, is to move Shed #1 away from the trailer.
 He used to move houses with his this was just a simple little task for him.
He didn't even need my help...
with a little prying and a pipe underneath...he gently rolled this shed over!
 Now it sits at the end of our driveway!
 Once the shed was moved ....the electrical box was exposed.
 A paint job spruced it up nicely!
 We had an old table...I was about to discard..
 But a coat of paint made it a nice 'extra' table.
 Hubby made 7 trips to Lowes with our Chevy cruise, hauling 25 bricks at a time! 
(who said we needed a  bigger vehicle?)
And laid our new patio!
 We now have steps at our back door.
 A beautiful patio to relax...
 and enjoy the sun...
Another year and we'll get some shrubs and finishing touches..
Now it's time to relax!
(What a handy dandy man I have!!)
