Once we got enough dirt in this section we covered it with weed cloth:
And put the rock in. Eventually we will take the sliding doors out, make new walls and add two windows….then we can add some plants:
Now that the concrete is finished we can finally get everything cleaned up. Mike starts the pressure washing and I follow along and wash all the windows and screens:
Just a little more work….I started painting the curbs. Last year the curb man matched the wrong color for the curbs….he matched the red brick that is under the windows. That was definitely the wrong color for Mike and I, lol. Niki back to her supervising:
I painted the ones on the right and the small one is still kind of orange:
Mike needs to repair the spot on the house where we took the old wall out. As you can see this house was originally brick and was covered over with stucco. We don't want to call in a stucco crew and since we can't match it we are going to move the gutter over…for now:
The board Mike is going to use:
The board is painted to match the house:
While Mike works on that I start to stain the brick under the bay window:
Moving the gutter:
And it is finished:
A couple of days later I look out the kitchen window and Mike is messing with the rusted old flagpole that he hates. He really thinks there is a toilet plunger(ball) on the top of it. After many trips back and forth with tools he finally got the pole cut. Now he is pulling on it so that it will fall to the ground…and hopefully not hit him:
Another job well done:
Mike testing out our new hammock that our friends gave us:)
That's all for now. And a switch up next week…we will be doing some mechanical work on the van…since Mike got ticked at the rip off quote from Dodge.
Have a great week and I'll write again next Monday.
