Ted hurt our mule(golf cart) , so he is using the lawnmower to haul bricks. The golf cart is in the golf cart repair, down the road. I sure hope the lawn mower holds up.
Put sand in the dug out area, quite a lot of sand...it may take three to four ton. This is one ton in the patio area off the steps of the deck/porch.
Run a string from the highest point to the lowest. There is an bit of an incline even this distance. We are moving the low point as we lay the bricks. This is Ted at the very start. As you can see we are coming off the driveway at one point. This house had the garage attached, till it was made into a big room and another garage/shop built. I like the drive up to the house.It helps get groceries carried into the house. Plus a short hop to get into the car in bad weather.
We are taking this brick up from the patio in the back , by the shed. When we made that area we didn't know the neighbor was going to have sheep in the back lot....not as bad as pigs but still pretty smelly. So we never used that area. But the sheep are gone for good and now we will make that area a green house...oh yes !!! For me, not any of Ted's junk, no way, no how. Just me, me me. !!! Oh sorry, I just get too excited thinking of that. Hope your weekend is wonderful. Hug your Dads for me please. I sure miss mine. xoxo
