corncrib gazebo

I worked for my employer, or in the yard until early evening when hubby went fishing at Lake Erie.  For some reason he and the boys like to night fish.  Don't take me wrong, I'm not complaining.  It is extremely rare I get "ME" time, or the house to myself, so I was practically counting the minutes until they left.

Once gone, I weeded a couple unruly flower beds, and began leveling the dirt under the cornzebo. 

I think I'll use this old grinding stone for the center, and radiate red brick out from there.  I still have 908 I bought at a yard sale last summer. 

I'm thinking about using these gray pavers around the outside edge for the actual corncrib wire frame to sit on.
These are the bricks I have left that I bought at a yard sale last summer.

I have a four day weekend next weekend.  I hope to have this completed by then.... I'll keep you posted.

Sounds like a great plan. I cannot wait to see the finished gazebo. Night fishing is fun. I use to go with my grandpa and cousins to Lake Erie when I was a kid. Fun memories.

This gazebo is going to be fantastic, I can see it already. I have a friend who has one and she planted the sides with flowering vines, morning glory, hyacinth bean and clematis and it is phenomenal.

I can't wait to see the finished project!
