It only took 11 years to get off the street

When we purchased our home in 2003 the owners were going to take out our cute little miniature cherry tree for a parking pad. Thankfully we got there in time and saved it. It had always been on our agenda to create a parking pad. Then life happened. Here we are 11 years later Рand we finally have off-street parking! We worked with our neighbors as we had to repair the damage our project had caused on their driveway. We came together with a design that would work together, and not be so much concrete. Additionally we did not want something impervious. Jose and his bobcat came back. The crew lined up the forms. Then the concrete truck came and started to pour.   The finished product Рcuring. This week Jose and his crew were back and added a nice old-world touch to the apron. The cobblestones provide a nice, vintage touch. We are all very pleased how it turned...

So this happened this week. Jose and his bobcat paid us a visit. They went to town. And that big hole in our backyard went bye-bye. We couldn’t believe that we used ALL of that dirt that we dug up when we did the cellar. And now we have a big clean slate to work with. I’ve already mourned the loss of our once beautiful backyard. And now we are ready for something new and more manageable with the help of our friend – and wonderful landscaper, Tim. Addison is all ready to clean out and use her playhouse again. I don’t blame her....
