A month ago, Jon expanded our patio with pavers. It was inexpensive and we love it. In the first and only "before" photo from April of 2010, when we had just signed off on the place, you can see the postage stamp sized slab of patio. When our grill sat there, sitting in chairs became waaay too cozy.
As you can see in the remaining "after" pics, Jon extended it. My only hand in this project was keeping the boys out of the way. :)
