It’s been a long time coming but we have some concrete! Initial impressions: the texture and color are close to what we were picturing. The color should lighten up nicely and it’s probably too early to worry about the texture.
I’m bummed that somehow we didn’t get a drain put in the firepit. The story is that I asked for there not to be one but think they just forgot.
