Thanks to all of you guys...you've given me some great options to look at....things I couldn't envision myself. I only wish you could come and help me build it! Thank you so much. I have to wait a few weeks til the ground isn't frozen but I'll definetely let you know when it's ground breaking time! In the meantime it's off to HOme Depot and Lowes to look for all of these things....Happy Valentine's Day!
