Personal Finance Review – Installing a Patio Edition

October 7, 2007


I don’t remember the last time I was this sore! We spent all weekend putting in a Pavestone patio with the help of my wife’s parents (thanks guys!).

We hit a few roadblocks along the way but managed to overcome them and now have a new back patio!  We still have one more step left to take but we’ll wait a while until our tired muscles and backs recover.  Not only did it cost less to do it ourselves, we picked up a few cool new tools and learned how to install a patio.  Needless to say I didn’t have much time for reading about personal finance but here are some articles I noticed.

    Thanks for the interesting article Pinyo. I agree, the patio will be worth the few days of soreness.

    Thank you for including my post, and have fun working on your patio. Outside work can be hard, but very rewarding.
