When this imgur user purchased this house, he wanted a cool backyard to hang out in. But, he had never really done any major projects or repairs then, so it was hard. He didn’t let that stop him, though.
6 months and about $2,000 later, he had turned his backyard into something that anyone would love to hang out in.
Here are a few shots of the house before all the renovation started.
Filling in the hole in the middle with rocks to level it out.
Adding in some sand on top of the rocks for a more level surface for the brickwork.
Putting in the bricks, with some added sand in between the cracks to prevent movement and to keep them stable.
The whole place all cleaned out for some necessary work done. Looking pretty good.
The deck after some power washing, scrubbing and once all the gaps had been filled with plastic wood and wood putty. A new step was also built using 2x4s to replace the rotting old one.
Panoramic view of the new wooden fence to replace the old one.
Added in a few cool chairs from Home Depot and an old wooden pallet that was sanded down and primed into white.
A few hanging lights for some added pizzazz
The whole place shinning brightly at night!
