Before and After? Stay Tuned!


May 10, 2010 by Marj Hatzell

Nearly five years ago we moved into our humble abode. This is what we had outside of our family room door:

The deck that the Beverly Hillbillies built. Complete with no footers and a 30 degree slant.

Still leaning.

When we ripped it down because it was leaning to one side, had a sink hole under four feet deep and was literally falling apart, it looked like this:

BIG dirt pit! WOO!

Mud! WOOO!

Two years later there was still a dirt pit.  DG got a TEENSY BIT tired of the mud being tracked through her house.  So her Darling husband, in an effort to make her feel less stressed about the dirt, did this:

Beverly Hillbillies Deck

View from my sliding door. Isn't it PURTY? The rug was my husband's attempt at limiting the dirt tracked indoors.

But today?  Today digging on the new patio started.  It will be done (FINISHED!  FINITO! ) in four days.  And it will look like…

We’ll, you’ll just have to come back and see, won’t you! HA!  So there!

Stay tuned…

    Very exciting! Nothing worse than a home project that takes longer than you want it to – by years.
