Since we've moved in, there has been an ongoing mental list of "what's next".
Lately, there has been several of these projects checked off...I'm grateful for my handy "men". Ben has an odd liking to digging, which has also helped with many of these projects!
Drain trench off the house, extends the gutter drain into the yard (it is now covered, don't worry)
Clothes line...a highlight for me!
New bathroom cabinet/shelves. The old ones simply HAD to go...one word for those, "Orville".
I think this next project has been my favorite so far to see complete. I didn't realize just how much I would like it...I was impressed.
Here's our driveway before...
After removing the rotten railroad ties, digging MANY holes, and putting up the fencing... this an idea of the finished look. We still need to get railroad ties to line the sides and a load of gravel to complete it.
This project was probably Christian's favorite...both for the helping process and the finished swing!
And last but not least of the recent projects...the compost pile.
It is on the left, the thing that looks a bit like a corral. It has fencing around it now. Ben knows more about the actual composting process than I..so he can better explain the design of his work.
Christian and I were picking mulberries..we later found out, its probably easier to just lay a tarp or something down, and the tree does all the work by dropping the ripe mulberries. Whew. They are messy. They're not my favorite berry, but I did make a cobbler and it wasn't too bad.
I'm sure there'll be more projects to come...
