Patio Planning

I love Spring and it gets me in the mood to spruce up the outdoors. One of my home goals was to expand the patio area and create an outdoor space that we could enjoy for three seasons, although here in Indiana it sometime feels as though we only have two seasons.  We have a 10x12 slab and wanted to add an addition like this:

Here is my crude mock up.  Originally I wanted a fire pit that was made out of pavers, but that is out of the budget right now.  We may add it in the future.  This is to scale, one square equals one square foot. 

I wanted to see how the drawing would translate in real life so I did this outside.  I am so glad that my kids have enough toys to use as markers (read in sarcastic tone).  I am sure that they neighbors think that I am nuts!  

After I figured out the layout I calculated how many pavers we needed and added an extra 10% just in case.  You are looking are 630 pavers.  Wyatt was confused why the workers did not lay the patio.  He does not know that he is one of the "workers"!  Hopefully we will get this started soon so we can enjoy the extra space.


  1. That's a lot of pavers! How much sand did you get? Can't wait to see the finished project!

    1. It is! We have not purchases the base or sand yet and I have no idea how much we need. I can not wait either!

  2. LOL cracking up about Wyatt not knowing he was one of the workers!
