We retired in Port Elizabeth from Cradock in the Platteland in December 2018. We moved into a Sectional Title Town House Complex and needed an outside area where we could kuier, even if the P.E. waether is not good. Coming from the Platteland, we wanted to bring a piece of the ‘farm” with us. That is where the idea of a “Plaasstoep” started.
On a tight budget we started planning and decided that most of the work will be done by ourselves.
We had an open paved area in our backyard and Madiba Bay Shades build us a patio cover over this area. The rest of the work was done by ourselves.
