Ah yes, Canada, long winters, and long spring... the snow takes so long to melt that we have it sticking around until the beginning o May sometimes. Fun stuff ( not ) !
As for Tim Hortons, yup, probabally the best coffee in the world haha, and Timmy's is slowly invading the States, and I'm sure it will catch on like wild fire. Some swear there is something addictive put into it... people just can't get enough of it up here.
Starbucks - in Canada anyway has lost a lot of market, they were really big a few years back, and now, they are not doing well up here... I don't know about the States though. Tim Hortons is just so strong up here, kind of like wild yeast taking over haha !
anyway, thanks much for that info. The tile looks great, and yeah I saw a few that were cracked in the photo, but am not surprised with it being outside. I said to my wife, that the tiles may be on top of a slab of concrete, and it turns out I'm right ! ( ha ! )
up here, I'd have to pour a good 5 feet of that, in order to make certain it wouldn't heave up during the spring.... can you imagine the cost of that ? .... I guess that's why nobody does it up here.
Thanks for the info, and keep posting your pics.
P.S. I cannot believe your grass is SO green..... it looks like July !
Canada, eh? I grew up in Grand Rapids, MI so I know all about a white yard in April I also have many Canadian friends, not least of whom is Tim Horton I wish we had Timmy's in California. Alas, only Starbucks
Concerning the tile, it's laid on a concrete slab by the previous owner. Unfortunately, some of the tiles have cracked due to the way they were laid. I have extra to replace it, I've just been too busy with another project
