Here you can see the columns that will support our covered patio. The wood has been delivered for the structure itself and the guys are here now to get started after a few days off due to rain. More columns, and in the back corner of the yard you can see the retaining wall/bench. The wall will be capped in the same coping as the pool. Fortunatley, there was a little leftover from the pool, so we had to buy about 4 feet, plus some end caps. It would probably look a little better if it was double bullnozed on both sides, but we like the idea of using up the leftovers, and it does save us a few hundred dollars.
