I basically have had only Mondays to work on it and it's hard to say how much time I've put in, working alone. If someone really wanted to, and had lots of help, I think this could be done in a month of weekends, but starting from scratch with masonry skills was a drawback. I just went out and wiggled the front arch and I don't know if it's going to be the right thing. But since I can't even light a fire in it for at least two weeks, I have time to fix it. Toughest thing is going to be cleaning up the yard around it and moving the pergola which is now smothered in wisteria that never blooms, but spends all it's time and energy climbing into the Yoshino cherry.
