Here at the Estates it is not all just Bar Build. We actually do things outside too. Recently, we have been working on Laurie's garden and getting the yard ready for the pool.
On April 9th we cut the big grandfather tree in the front:
That is alot of wood left over. How did I get rid of it so fast you wonder? Craig's List! I posted an ad on CL and they came a runin'. The wood was semi-rotten and not good for burning in a wood burning stove, but alot of people like to use this $hitwood for burning camp-fires. One guy showed up with a dump truck. A few hours later, all that wood was gone.
And....here is what it looks like today:
Laurie added another level..which meant yet another one of her rock walls. I swear people are going to pay her to build these things.
Oh...the pool. We need to dig into the side of the hill. The pool is to big and if we don't dig into the side of the hill, the pool will rest on top of the leech field of the septic system. Not good.
Of course as I was digging I hit a rock the size of a VW Beetle. I had to call in re inforcements.
You can barely see the rock in the picture above...it is buried just beneath the surface like an iceberg. Only it is a rock. And not floating in water.
I gotta get a picture of this rock. I will tomorrow. Promise.
After the rock was removed, I got back to work digging into the side of the hill. Here is what it looked like April 25th:
Now here is a picture taken from a 2nd story window of what the hill looks like today: (that is not my dog wondering how the fat one got up so high)
See? not everything going on around here revolves around a bar.
