A Barbeque Waiting to Happen

slate patio

We Just finished applying a layer of 24” x 24” slate tiles to our back patio. It was a straight-forward enough tiling job, but the scale of it has me feeling like i just finished building the pyramids or something. But I think that it was worth the effort. Just had to show it to you.

Prior to laying the slate, we dug up some unwanted lawn, extended the existing slab and widened the staircase to provide some extra area for outdoor livin’.

    That looks fabulous! Please contact me regarding hosting a house concert with my band. :-)

    (Seriously though… house concerts make a hell of a good party. Contact me for details if you’re curious, even if you *don’t* want to use my band.)

    Looks great, guessing it’s 24′ x 24′ though!

  3. James Says:

    Whoops, my bad – those would be big tiles…

  4. ken Says:

    I guess now would be a good time to mention that I *am* in fact available for some outdoor BBQ parties this summer.

  5. Steve Says:

    Hey Ken! We have vowed to have at least one! You will be invited.
