Weekend project? No problem!

We had big dreams in re-doing a lot around the house. Water issues in the basement led to a foundation inspection, which found drainage issues. Drainage issues led to the need to slop everything away from the house...and removing a large patio by our backdoor (south of the pool) that had been covered by mulch.

Trav worked for 5 days on the project, two of those with my dad. The process involved using a sledge hammer to break up chunks of the patio and haul it to a corner of the yard to be dealt with on a later day.

My mom and I, however, worked to slope the yard in the front of the house away from our foundation. While doing this, we had the crazy idea to paint our swing.
