Our first big investment into our home....

Allan and I have decided to fix up our back yard. We were hesitant at first, just because it is such a big investment and we don't plan on being in this house forever, but we decided to go for it. We received some cash for the wedding and decide this would be a way we could put it into something we would really enjoy. We are not putting an extreme amount of cash into it, because in 6 or so years we will probably move on to a bigger home, but in the mean time we want to enjoy our back yard. The guys are coming today to start on it and it should be complete in 3 days. These are some before pictures that we took this morning. Our back yard is great, it has a lot of character, it is a 1/2 acre lot with a hill that goes up to a flat, big section. We are cutting out some of the hill and extending the patio, putting up a stone retaining wall, replacing the rocks to the shed with big stone steppers, and putting stone steps up to the top of the hill. In the fall, we are going to put a fire pit area on top of the hill. We are kind of nervous and excited to see how it turns out and hoping that we are happy with it.
