The build-up of the main patio has begun...starting with the lowest of three retaining walls. This is going to be some major build. How exciting. It already looks great!!! This part took about 6 hours. Precision is key! It may take another week and more materials to complete the main patio. What a ginormous task! And to think that my husband thought he could have done the same with just a wheelbarrow. Um...I don't think so, MacGyver. Ah yes, the ditch. Well, it's good news. There's no need to spend money and effort to install a sump pump to control the water accumulation since the water level does not seem to rise near dangerous level at all. So, the crew will fill the ditch with as much 0-3/4 loose gravel, compact it and then soil. Delay averted. Phew!
To be continued...HAPPY THANKSGIVING, CANADA!
