This Patio Was Built In A Day
Since I was so over tiling inside under those florescent lights I decided it was a good time to move this party outside. About a year ago – I brought home a pallet of grey stones from the ReBuilding Center that I thought would make an awesome tile floor! It was only $100 for the whole pallet which was .50 Cents a SF or $1.00 per tile.
When I brought them home though – Hugh informed me that they were far to heavy to be flooring. (Dang it!) So we have had them sitting in my driveway for all this time covered in a tarp. It was so ugly and annoying that apparently I didn’t take a single picture. But, in the last year, I’ve done some research about what these stones are intended for and it turns out they are pieces of commercial siding. I finally found a place for them. I used them as the patio outside of the the basement space.
I laid this patio that same as the one out front.
1. Level out the dirt.
2. Lay down about 1″-2″ of gravel
3. Lay Down the stones and make sure it’s level with a 6′ level.
Here are progress pictures:
I used a 6′ Level to even out the gravel.
Placed the stones one by one
