Backyard Retreat



My backyard tends to flood when it rains heavy or for a few days and it makes it hard to enjoy the outdoor space. I wanted to be able to use my backyard year round and also wanted to incorporate the fire pit for those colder months to have friends and family around. I made a cutout in the middle so that the fire pit sits below the deck just a little bit and prevents it from burning the deck itself. I think I used just about every Ryobi Tool I had in the shed to get this project finished. This was a fun build and I look forward to many backyard BBQ's and quiet relaxation.
