I have been busy with this project for about two months or so... I wanted an outdoor fireplace and decided to add a screened porch which seemed more useful than a patio with one. A patio and pool are on the backburner...but, times are tough, and not sure about spending $$$$ right now. We had my son's sixteenth "Sweet" party already before the porch was finished. We call it the "Sanctuary"...many naps already out there!
