What is the reason for the outside border?

rojoeclipse94 says:

I just bought the same pergola myself! You did a great job sir. I have to ask though, why did you repaint? Rust prevention? Unnoticed you painted inside the pieces also

Mark Robinson says:

neat and nice, very nice. awesome job, did you use anything to hold stones near pergola, or is it just stones on top of each other?

The King says:

Salvador Mendez says:

Josh Morrison says:

Mr Tidy says:

Thank you for your video. It helped me build mine.

Kristin Williams says:

I need to exchange my husband for a new one. He wouldn't never do something like this to our house! Nice job, your wife is a lucky lady!

eldoradoNei says:

Sandi Remson says:

Cesar Nino says:

Not bad! I worked with my dad over summer doing these types of jobs, I bet bringing in the crush was a pain by wheel barrel lol. Only thing I noticed is that when you lay brick you want to level the entire area. Makes it ease diet than by sections. Then do a outside frame with the bricks, work your way from one side. And try to leave minimal pieces with cuts (looks nicer), and try to put those cut pieces towards the siding of the house so they are not noticeable. Just a future tip, again nice job, it's really not that bad as people think, but it can be a good amount of work if you rush it and make mistakes.

Very cool! What's the name of the song you're playing?

hello and thank you for posting! your work is inspiring and brilliant. i'm prepping to 'permeable pave' my lot and my first task is to remove an attached deck. this means temporary steps. you mention dry stacking before permanent adhesive (not new, but excellent advice on its own). is this what you did for the steps – no concrete foundation? no code/inspection for below 30in here, so i'm looking for inexpensive but attractive alternatives to wood. thank you. namaste.
