Today we have the fencing subcontractors here. Weather permitting, they'll be repairing, replacing and adding to our back yard fences between now and Wednesday. I think they're also supposed to be providing the six foot gate at the front into the side yard.
Photos here of the prep work for the pergola; the pittosporums after they had been pruned back (to encourage more growth lower down); the back yard stonework finished except for the final grouting; and a hitherto unseen view into the San Francisquito Creek, which runs behind our house. It has a fair bit of water in it, also unusual.
