Garden Renovation: Days 12-16 – Shade Structure & Demo Table
This week has seen this phase of the construction coming to a close. The shade structure (we really need a better name for it!) completed and they have been working on the new demonstration table. Let’s take a look!
Oops! Hit the main irrigation water line. This re-flooded the just-dried-out south lattice end of the garden, preventing additional work on the drainage lines and preparations for getting the pavers in.
As the final touches were going on to the shade structure, they started work on the demonstration table. The concrete pad was scraped off to remove the mud from the last week, and they started bringing in the block.
Once they had the block laid for the demonstration table, they put up the frame for the concrete top of the table. If the table seems high, that’s because it is. It will be 42″ tall, and then a platform will be built behind the table to elevate the speaker a little bit to a comfortable height on the table.
Of course with the thunderstorm that went through last night, the southern end of the garden is pretty soggy again, continuing to delay fixing that water line, putting in the final drain line, and beginning the work of laying the pavers. UGH. It looks like it is supposed to be sunny and dry all next week, so we should make progress on the rest of it!
