A few years ago, when I was still living in Miami, I began to explore outdoor patio experiences that I had never tried before.
And in a few months, I found myself in the process of building a patio on the same property.
And now I’m proud to tell you that I was able to do it in a weekend.
I started by assembling a set of wooden planks, which I’d cut and glue together.
Then, I cut a piece of plywood and attached it to the wooden plank.
Then I took my planks and started stacking them like a house.
The plywood didn’t get as high as I wanted, so I used a little bit of scrap to make the legs.
I laid out a couple of planks of ply in the middle of the floor of the kitchen and added some wooden beams.
Then I started stacking the planks in the backyard and added two more wooden beams, as well as some pieces of ply that I’d bought for a patio patio on my own.
The idea was to have something that was going to be a little more sturdy than a regular patio, but also a little shorter than a typical patio.
I had to cut the top off and then glue it together, so the edges were still attached.
When I cut out the legs, I added a few extra planks for the patio, just in case I needed to add extra wood to the legs later.
After that, I just laid out the plywood, and cut a hole in the plan for the legs and then added the legs to the patio.
It took me about two weeks, but I’m happy with the results.
Here are some photos of the finished patio (click on any photo to enlarge it):So, what were you doing before you built your own patio?
What kind of outdoor experiences do you have planned in the near future?
