Have you ever said I need to go back to work just so I can rest? That's the way it was around here! From Friday through Tuesday we were busy at work with the garden house. Come see the progress we have made!
We did part of the rock wall, brought the old patio set up so when we took a break we could sit down. We dug out over a foot and a half of dirt on the left side, and then placed it on the right side to bring it level.
The sun is already creeping up in the sky for another hot day although I must say we had beautiful weather over the weekend waking up in the morning to a 60 degree (15C) temperature.
Blackie checking out the new pad.
The sand being put down and leveled out.
We have had these bricks and rocks for ages. Always thought that when we moved we would make pathways with them. For now they will make a patio and rock wall!
We had all different colors so we mixed it up a bit.
We propped the windows up to see what it will look like.
I have a little path to the side here which we will either use pebbles or boards.
Hubby will be adding the step to the front soon. Being in maintenance he is always measuring things to code. This is the finished left side....(looking from the front)
And here is the right side
I never dreamed that I would have all of this! I was just expecting dirt although I did know that I wanted the rock wall so it would keep dirt from washing down. I wanted that European cottage look! Next will come the windows, French doors, closing up the top along the eaves, and adding the vents. It was a very busy five days, but we did stop to go over to the neighbors for a 4th cookout. Thank goodness for that as I didn't feel like cooking!! Now I better get busy with other outside chores as it is suppose to get extremely hot again!
