And it would seem Rome nor patios can be built in a day, or in this case, a weekend. I will say we came pretty close, and that were it not for 100% of our workforce (me) becoming ill we could have finished. I was able to make it this far:
With a few more hours of cutting, filling in joint sand and tamping, the patio will be complete. All that will be left is to landscape this whole thing. It's starting to heat up outside, the deck and patio are looking good and I can see that first beer at the end of the tunnel.
