That's my dearie! Working much too hard but then he does love his ol' biddy! lol
I got all the pavers lined up in a row. We got the neighbour in with his handy dandy machine and things happened. He is right! I always under estimate how long it takes to do things.
But the walk is done. We have to include a drainage trench and we have moved it just inside the new fence line. This area will be the entrance. We'll add 2 posts for the double gate. It needs to be wider as I wedged the lawn mower in the gate once. ooops!
Hubby is just amazed at how long that walk is! We went out and bought a wagon to haul groceries to the house and then we designed a step in it! :( LOL
Replacing the old fence is next.
The wall of fence left people confused as to where the gate was so I decided an inset gate was the way to go. We have had more
How great that a fence pounder is available for rent only 3 miles away!!! Phew! Also great that the fence posts are leaving my area of the barn! We used every spare post on yard and a couple from the reject pile.
How great that the Rooster has an assistant! I can hardly wait to be replaced. lol
The veranda needs to be closed in and then we need to think about the gravel walk around the entrance as I luv the sound of walking on it but the gravel is always jumping into the flower bed not to mention the grass!
This veranda is a PROBLEM. I luv it and it is our main entrance but it has always moved as frosts heave it around. Last year we put down some kind of in-ground posts and better beams. So far, so good! Next we need to be creative to disguise the one post and beam by the steps. Now the roof is sagging. :( That needs another creative solution before the window guys get up on it. Rooster to the rescue! lol
The old windows have square glass sections that are going to be put in the big barn along the sides. The original barn windows were removed and boarded up so we will be 'letting in the light' on my future workroom. I'm hoping to find 2 longer windows that open for the front of the barn. These boards are for the fence but I had a 'good idea'! I need two walls put up and I want white but rustic. Boards would be good! The next job for my Rooster. ;^) Far behind that wheel barrow is the raised bed garden area. That is definitely his work as he is the 'real' gardener. He finds weeding to be very relaxing. Probably because I'm not around to add to his Rooster list! lol It's a good thing he likes eggs because as a chick, I'm not much of a pie maker!
The summer is drawing to a close. Fall is fast approaching. Time to start stroking off the completed projects. I don't want to count those chicks before they are hatched but things are looking like they just might be worth crowing about!
