yeah, Sush, when are you coming to the cafe?
I need to go over the ordering with you.

I'll be in the jacuzzi for a few, though - need to relax!

Bang's guys have given me these prices on the first items for the outdoor area:

18 round pedistal tables...$7,650
72 matching chairs...$7,632
4 wooden highchairs...$516

Fountain...$5,800


waterlilies for the pond: $425
baby koi (big ones are too expensive) $1,640
Construction of outdoor fireplace on west wall: $9,450

cobblestone patio:$25,675

Okay, so far we're at $58,788
Let me know if I can go ahead and start the project.

Fountain...$5,800

Wow! Ok.... so far way under budget! About the fountain...... its nice but how much for the water wall that surounds it and the water pump and the electrical work to run a line out to it?
And the cobblestone.... VERY nice... but is that with install?
ALSO, the plants and aquatic life..... what happens when it freezes over the winter?

Out side of that..... it will look beautiful!!!

Thank you - I can always find the best deals.

About the fountain...... its nice but how much for the water wall that surounds it and the water pump and the electrical work to run a line out to it?
Bang's guys quoted it at $1950 for the install at first, but after I made them a huge tri-tip dinner and gave them some Mondavi 2002 Cab, and tickets to Brian Setzer, they cut it down to $675.

And the cobblestone.... VERY nice... but is that with install?That is WITH the install! apparently this is the newest in the line, and we will be the first to have it, so they will be using it for their video demonstrations. (I told you I can always get the best deal)
ALSO, the plants and aquatic life..... what happens when it freezes over the winter?
There is a little unit, around $89 that is hooked into the electrical system of the fountain. It heats and keeps the water at a steady 72 degrees, no matter what the weather.

Out side of that..... it will look beautiful!!!
Still working on the ivy.
Hey, since Middie's gone, can I share the pie and wine?
