Sometimes progress comes much more slowly than we want. This is true of our big summer project, the storage building and picnic area on the lower part of our lot. There are many stages to this project that are dependent upon local contractors we’re hiring. So we’ve been at the mercy of their schedules. Each step has involved weeks of waiting and then a day or two of work. We’re currently back in the waiting mode once again. Anyway, I thought I’d post an update on the project.
This is what the lot looked like before any work was done.
Then, in March we had some trees removed. I posted about that process here.
In May, things were much greener. We had the tree stumps removed and level areas were created for the planned storage building and picnic areas.
Mr. MT Nest went to work spreading straw and grass seed on the new banks to prevent erosion. He also collected rocks and built a rustic rock wall along the pathway from the driveway to the picnic area.
The contractors who will be pouring our slab for the storage building came and put up the framing.
This is where the work stands now. We’re waiting for additional work on the picnic area and digging to bury drainage pipes. Then the concrete slabs for the building and picnic areas will be poured and we’ll be able to continue the work on the landscape.
