This report illustrates the complete process of the implementation of an outdoor space consisting of a hardscaped firepit area covered by a pergola in the backyard of the Discipleship Home in Oceano, CA. This project was carried out by two construction management students, Andreas Rasmussen and Logan Smith. Logan Smith’s primary focus was the pergola while I was in charge of the hardscaping and natural gas firepit directly underneath the structure. The project was completed in December of 2020 with the use of quality materials purchased from local businesses and the help of local equipment rental store, Grover Tool & Rentals. This area now provides beautiful aesthetics and great function for an organization designed to get men in the community, that have taken a wrong turn in life, back on track. Together, Logan and I were able to improve our construction skills, teamwork, and our community in just a few months.
