Here is a photo of my son Chad, finishing up the stone for their patio. Kris is so happy about this, she's pleased with the way it's turning out. Kris will soon be finished teaching for the summer, I wonder when her last day is. Photo: Taken by Kris

I love the pattern of the paving stones! I'm sure they'll get a lot of use out of the patio.

Chad worked in the building business for almost 20 years. So, he likes to do these home projects. First the sod had to be dug out, then gravel beneath the paving stones.

@kobesbuddy And all tapped level before the stones could go down. Yes, I worked for a couple of years for one of my brothers who owns a construction business. It's fascinating work.

That patio is going to look so nice if it finished up the same standard as the stone. I love that pattern.

Chad remodeled their kitchen, bedroom, and main bathroom. He did a nice job! Their house is over a hundred years old, a solid older home.

@kobesbuddy It takes a special kind of a person to appreciate an old home and to care for it and remodel it properly.

@Juliaacv They talked about selling this home. Now that they've remodeled it to suit themselves, it won't ever happen!

Those paving stones are fairly simple to lay. The only problem, the sod needs to be removed and a layer of gravel spread underneath the stones. Chad loves doing projects like this!

To complete this job, he had to first remove all the sod. Then, the bottom filled with a layer of gravel, to stabilize the paving stones. Leveling it will take some hard work.

They had to dig the sod out and then use gravel underneath. I'd love to have a patio!
