I love the varied composition of a gated pinwheel fence, beautiful pearls and a grass yard.

The games included a pinwheel bean bag toss to leisurely pass the afternoon away and a white balloon pit for the kids to play in.

Also build the slant roof with at least a 4 degree pitch, otherwise rain may not sheet off well. Download our liberal pdf for tips tools and advice for pole building construction and design.

AS luck would have it the tops of the blocks were exactly level.Left over from a previous stenciled driveway project 12 years ago, I had a almostfull roll of mock herringbone stencil. The best part was that the windows were only$100 each.Sadly, I may have to wait until spring to go up and frame them in. The concrete was a little faster than we were so I now have a few areas with a distressed brick look.
It adds to the rustic character.Two weeks later I had a truck load of lumber delivered and picked up some heavy timbers at a nearby saw mill.
