Summer Projects

While Phil is still unemployed, we decided that this was a great time to get some of the house projects done that we've wanted to do since moving in last August.

*Re-do the flagstone patio. Take out the little rocks that get kicked up everywhere and lower the flagstone so the wooden beams show so we can build a railing eventually for safety.

*Plant a veggie and flower garden on the side of the house in the flower beds.

*Plant flowers and plants out front to make the front of the house look nice. As you can see, it's still a work in progress.

*Build a storage loft in the garage so we can park one of the cars in the garage and clean/organize the garage.

I am so proud of my husband and what a great job he did on the loft. I helped a little here and there when needed but he was the mastermind behind the job. Great job for your FIRST EVER construction job!!

Over the past 3 weeks or so, we were able to accomplish all of those projects. We still have a little more to plant in the front of the house but the other projects are done! Now for leveling, tilling, topsoiling and seeding the side-yard. I can't WAIT until we have a nice side-yard of grass for Taeya to play in. I'm also looking forward to not tracking in TONS of dirt every time we go out to water our garden.
