Backyard Patio Retreat: The Base


After some time away to recharge, I'm back with an exciting project!  I've teamed up with Hobby Builders Supply/ miniatures.com to create a summer scene featuring a few outdoor items from their catalogue.

This in-depth weekly series will take you through my build from start to finish as I create a modern miniature deck and patio space.   I've done my best to use accessible materials and tools as well as provide tutorials and tips throughout (from faux finishes to electrical).  This is probably my most step-by-step build-a-long yet!  Today we're starting with the base of the build with the structure, the stairs, and flooring.
