  • How To REALLY Build A Flagstone Patio By Yourself

    Every so often we come across a great blog post that just has to be shared. The super hilarious narration of Telling Dad’s exploits when building a flagstone patio had us splitting our sides with laughter.

    Telling Dad totally nails it right from the start. The post is called “How to Build a Flagstone Patio in 3 Days” and his opening line is:

    “To be honest, I have no clue how to build a flagstone patio in 3 days. This was just the original title I started with after everything I read on the internet recommended setting aside “2-3 days” to build a flagstone patio. Liars. “

    Excellent!

    Telling Dad goes on to explain exactly how long and what it took in terms of tools, methods and so on to lay a simple 12×15 flagstone patio, with assistance from his family members including his very cute 3 year-old daughter!

    This is a really great post to read if you are considering remodeling your patio without the help of professionals. Unlike other blog posts or remodeling website, it’s a very honest and real account of how to do it, what problems you might run into and what little details need to be taken into consideration along the way.
