750 square foot stone sculpture

The focus of summer 2010 was a huge installation sculpture otherwise known as the Back Patio. It has been 4 years in the making. I dunno...I might have made it more complicated than it had to be, but I need to be surrounded by art and the space just called out for something...spectacular. The idea was to create a large Sun and surround it with the planets (including the Dwarf Planets - Ceres, Pluto, Haumea, Makemake, and Eris.) The pathway and sitting area around the West side of the house will need to be finished next summer.

A lot of work, but it moved along quickly considering that this is a photo from April 2010. There was still about 4 tons of dirt to move out, a French drain to dig and a 80 foot wall to put up before the patio could begin.
