It's more than a house. It's an adventure.

Long overdue

Wow, it's really been 6 weeks since I've posted an update? I've been slacking!

Not a tremendous amount to report. We had a major hot spell, which limited work outside. Once things cooled off, though, we were able to make some major progress in the yard. We have now:

  • Re-weeded the area between the kitchen, family room & bedroom and put landscaper's felt down just to keep the weeds down.
  • Completed cleanup across the top of the driveway and mulched that.
  • More securely replaced the fence section that kept dropping.
  • The walkway between the fence and the bedroom was ripped up, somewhat leveled, and grass planted.
  • Relocated some of the plants behind the fence at the top of the driveway to "outside" the fence, and planted grass there.
  • Started cleanup of the "island" where the lilac tree is.

With a week left in August, we're feeling confident that we can turn the entire area between the shed, bedroom & driveway into grass before the snow flies. We'll need the rain to hold off on the weekends so that we can push hard, but it really seems doable. More than we expected to get done this year! And given the progress made this year, we think we might be able to get the rest of the backyard cleared in 2007.
