Check out this awesome deck and walkway makeover!! My brother did an amazing job tearing out an old sun room; building a petite deck for two and a grill while adding a beautiful quick cast cement patio area. For about $16, you can purchase this cast from Lowes, along with some quick dry cement and put down your own patio!
STEP 1: An area was hand dug to the desired patio size including steps from the driveway.
STEP 2: A tarp was laid and gravel was poured….lots of gravel…
Gravel was evenly racked over the plastic.
STEP 3: Start demo on sun room…
STEP 4: Flooring, posts and joists laid over existing concrete slab. Sheet rock laid on exterior wall.
STEP 5: Trim excess off the sides.
STEP 6: Begin to add railing and Airstone!
STEP 7: Finish railing and add steps/gate for the cutest bull dog puppy ever!
STEP 8: Tongue and groove paneling was added above the rock facade to cover the upper sheet rock.
STEP 9: Build Quickrete cement molds and place on top of gravel.
STEP 10: Add trim to finish off area.
STEP 11: Tape off area for painting!
STEP 12: Mark off areas for herb and flower garden.
STEP 13: Sweep gravel inbetween cement molds and add water to set. Then add patio furniture!
My brother spent about 5 days from dawn to dusk working on this labor of love. It looks amazing in my opinion.

I’m a fan of that European Block Brick. Hmm…someone’s going to be playing around with cement in the future, and that someone is me!
