Mission Oasis: COMPLETE

John's been putting the finishing touches on our backyard! The landscaping has been done for several months, but he's now focused his attention on some carpentry work- building a Barbecue island. He took his time on it, so not to get burnt out and just finished it! It looks AMAZING!! People pay BIG $$$$ for those around here and he was able to do one at probably a quarter of the price!! Maybe less! The fire pit and bench was quick work for my husband! Every time I look outside, it makes me want to grab my favorite book and sit out in our own little tropical paradise and just drift away! Once we get through the cold months ahead, we plan on throwing a killer BBQ!!!

Before

Now!!
