Im a heart patient and cant be out in sun and heat. Plus I have a neighbor who sneaks up in his tree to see us.
Wonderful solution. Amazon has shade sails as well , I have two up over my dog pen. I have no trees in the area and the sails help keep the dogs cooler in the summer. I take mine down in the winter, put them back up in the spring. Looks great! Where have you attached the wind sails to? At least when you are outside you aren't on display to the neighbors.
The neighbors yard is concealed as well. I poured a much smaller slab in front of my basement door all by myself. All my husband did was put in wood forms. I had to mix the cement in a wheelbarrow. I needed some steps going out the back of the garage because the step down was very far.

Check it out My side patio was a mess!
For as long as I can remember, When it comes to up-keep, a home is a never ending story This is the before picture. I filled the frames with rocks and added rebar and mesh. It was a back breaking job to pour and finish the slab!
I was just one guy and had to mix as I went along. I did the two small ones one day and the larger box on another. Here you can see the slabs are curing. I added wind sails, they really make the space!
I build seating along the fence line and attached a tall backing to it. The cool thing about this patio project is, it feels modern and welcoming. The furniture also serves as privacy from prying eyes. Earlier photo missing backing on second privacy seating.

Mar on Apr 5, Terrific job. Did it require a building permit? There was no mention of that! Nice work regardless. Dou on Apr 5, Did you support the high back to the ground or is it attached to the benches? It looks great. I have never seen the wind sails before. I love the look. Thank you for sharing. Kate LC on Apr 5, Where did the wind sails come from? Jpz on Apr 5, Sandra on Apr 5, I love the seating transitioning into the privacy screening! Wonderful and creative project!
You've got talent! Adele Kunyz on Apr 5, Great ideas! Wish I had a man who can do!! Cindy Patrice on Apr 5, Girl power! Anything boys can do girls can do better!
Lifestyles Homes on Apr 5, Please Let us know how the painted lumber "wears", as I didn't hear the words "treated lumber". Kate on Apr 5, Just a note to the women out there who may find cutting the lumber an issue, the big box stores will cut each piece for you, really.
Lay out your project on paper, figure the cuts and bingo. I personally can run a saw, however most times, just let them cut it up for me, then I just screw it together Just John on Apr 5, Awesome results. What, if any, plans do you have for decorating your shed? Pat Hilgendorf on Apr 5, Willie Simpson on Apr 5, Amazing Creative;a work of art; The concrete looks perfect: How did you mix concrete; It is done in sections.. Doesn't seem possible.. The finish looks perfect.
On the electrical , are there connections in the Little LB. If I have to make connections that will never be acessible.. The woodwork is amazing.. The way the seating is part of a privacy screen is genius and artful as it curves.. Wet and pressure or cut grooves in wood and bend? Seems impossible..
Ken on Apr 5, Looking at the pictures, where are there curves? Marilyn Sharp on Apr 5, I think he's referring to the canvas screen that is in the top left of the picture. It stumped me at first too. Susan on Apr 5, Juliana Blitzer Skraps on Apr 5, I have cracks in my patio dont have the money to repave it.

I would suggest pavers, which can be laid with narrow sand joints or you can place them further apart with pea gravel between them.

Patricia Gallagher on Apr 5, Loved my results Paint is heavy to roll you need a strong back but still looks good after 2 years.
Nit on Apr 5, I am looking for a canopy idea, but I need it to be water proof so when it rains we can still grill outside. Are the wind sails water proof?
Joyce Wilcox on Apr 5, You did a very nice job. Definitely looks private. What did you do with the electrical outlets? Did you do ambiance lighting? Mary Lee Shipley on Apr 5, Luisa Steccato on Apr 5, Good Job, enjoy! Irene on Apr 5, All of your back-breaking labor paid off- now, you can rest on those cool benches! Gary Borg on Apr 5, Billie Prater on Apr 5, Dorothy Sittler on Apr 5, Looks pretty but where did you house the garbage and recycling containers?
Njbjrb on Apr 5, Look at the last pic, it is behind the bench next to the tree. Maybe a new project? Building something to contain them?? Good job otherwise! Phyllis Williams on Apr 5, Maybe the green garbage can is on street with garbage in it?! Kimi on Apr 5, I think he got a new garbage container to match the benches! Ann M on Apr 6, Dah on Apr 6, Ann M, Dorothy Sittler cares! Julia Hochhalter on Apr 6, Great inspiration and looking forward to seeing your wood furniture instructions.
I love the idea Mare Tupper had about adding colorful flower boxes near the tops of the bench 'screens' for privacy. Looks amazing and little colorful touches will make it more interesting and maybe add a little flair instead of just being for privacy tho privacy is important! Thanks for sharing and please do give instructions on the furniture!
