If you’ve been following my posts, you no doubt saw my post about the challenges we’re facing in getting the lot behind our Barden Home how we want it, and usable.  You probably saw my illustrations as well and are familiar with the 2 options I discussed.  One thing that I DIDN’T do before making the illustrations is research the approximate cost per square foot for composite decking.  After doing so, I quickly adjusted the dimensions I was using to be a bit more economical. 

Show the Contractor What You Want

It was super helpful to have the 2 options illustrated to show the contractor today.  It allowed me to show him what our thoughts were for options, and get help in making the best decision.  At this point, we are proceeding with Option 1 from my post.  As a refresher, option 1 was the option with multiple tiers and rounded gardens.  This option also has a set of concrete steps that goes down the middle and into the yard. 

Here’re some revised illustrations:
