With steel delivered the work can commence! This is a heavy project which will create shade, division, and order in a back yard that is home to 3 greyhounds and a terrier.

Here’s what things looked like at the beginning of phase 1

And this is where it’s at now!

This second half of the job will be extending the frame out into the yard about 20′, installing parallel steel cables attached at each end of the top of the frame to allow shade fabric to be extended and retracted over the soon to be patio. Steel (rebar) trellises will be welded to the structure to allow plants to climb and creat living shade (a veggie jungle gym!)

So may the cutting, grinding, lifting and welding begin!
