Just received a set of concrete polishing pads from FleaBay, real cheap. I'll start polishing the countertop in the next few days.
Meanwhile I poured a couple of more areas of groundslab.

Thanks! Here's a latest shot from a couple of days ago. I'm pretty happy with the way the counter turned out, nice and solid. Now it needs to be ground a bit and polished.

Thanks!
Poured more sections of ground slabs during the week to expand the bbq area. They will eventually be acid stained. The bbq counter is at the lower left of the pic.
I took this pic this morning from our 2nd story deck looking down.

Ykies! Looks like the project is growing and taking on a life of its own. I love to watch other people work...carry on, and good job RF!

Here's a couple more progress shots from this week. I temporarily installed the charcoal grill to check for fit.

That will be such a beautiful party area, and so glad to see you have a nice view RF.
Will you be doing anything about some kind of shade for the barbeque center?

Thanks K. Yes, I will eventually build a pergola over that area. That entire area faces S-SW so we get a lot of sun.

Have you thought about shade sails? They would be much less expensive and you could get really creative with the shapes/colors. On that hill with the view they would make a spectacular statement! There's tons of ideas for them on the internet.
