Belvedere Update 34

More progress on the exterior. The pool is filled and the rest of the plantings are in. The path to the dining room has also been fully planted, including between the pavers. This is going to look even better as those start to fill in. Another view of the patio showing how dense the plantings are and a hint of the great view. Gutters (copper half-round) and downspouts are in, as is the exterior lighting and the screens. The upper patio paving system...

The project is moving right along. The site is starting to really green up, even with just the existing trees and plantings in there its difficult to get an overall shot of the construction from the road below. Below you can see the block shelf built up from the footing,...
