Construction Day Done!

The work is finished. I can’t even begin to believe it. Seven days and they took several tons of rock and sawed and hand chipped into shape two lovely patio/walkways and stairs. I thought I’d be blogging the long process of this project because every project undertaken at this house and my last one took months. Literally months to rebuild and enclose a small porch, build from scratch a larger porch, install a permeable-paver driveway. You name it. But this? All the hard work. All the painstaking placement and chipping. Crazy. Four workers showed up every morning and worked like crazy, breaking only for lunch. The crew even had women—one for the whole job and one filling in on the last day. If I’d known such opportunities existed when I was young…

I don’t even have the photos off my phone yet.

OK, back to my WIP!
