We did absolutely NOTHING on the house this week. David taught three evenings at the gym at our church, we celebrated a birthday, spent time with the grandkids and helped our daughter and son-in-law put up a fence. However, I have a few things I want to show you.
David’s been using the garage as a workshop but hasn’t really had any time to actually set it up. He had one shelving unit set up but last week he took the other unit we had in storage and set it up. It actually has more usable space this way.
If you recall, we’ve had problems with the plumbing since the day we moved in. David’s rented a snake twice and it finally looks like he won this battle. Now when I do laundry, the drain doesn’t back up:
And we have a corner of the basement that leaks when it rains a lot. Well, it’s been raining a LOT here in the Midwest and that corner was pretty wet. But he did some work outside and the leak is much less. A little more work and we should have it licked.
And, of course, being the great papa that he is:
Now, I thought you might enjoy seeing his weekend project at our daughter and son-in-law’s new house. They’ve been there about a month and are loving it. There’s just one problem – the yard isn’t completely fenced so their dog is going a little crazy from being cooped up in the house.
So to keep the dog out of trouble, David went over this weekend and helped install the fence. Because the driveway winds around the back of the house, they had to get creative in how they did the fence. They installed a couple of sections of privacy fence on one side, a picket-type fence from the house to the garage and closed up a hole between their garage and the neighbor’s garage and enclosed the area under the steps. Take a look:
Here’s the front view of the house:
They LOVE this front porch!
And now the fencing project:
The garage is behind the house. The blue garage belongs to the neighbor. They put a section of fence between the garages so Cece couldn’t escape that way.
The area under the back steps is open so they had to close that up.
A little help from Cece.
And this side is done.
Now to the area between the back steps and garage:
And now Cece can run off some energy in her newly fenced back yard.
And that’s it for this week.
