Oh so edgy

Garden borders in. Had mum and daughter time in the garden today cutting wood to size, digging out channel and filling in the new garden edge. Looks amazing compared with the old rotten pieces of untreated Rimu I had lying in vaguely the right places....

Lookn good Gaz

Steps are taking shape. Just the side steps around the corner to go.

The world is happening.

Well steps are happening. You wouldn't think it. We survived almost a year jumping of a 600mm deck with no help. Problem is we have a small person who also thinks its cool to jump off. So steps are now required. Foundations in place and things are happening fast, very fast!

Progress on the gable ends

Having to strip off flakey paint, remove rot, replace with new timber, re-mortar holes, seal cracks and finally paint... So it has not been the smallest job. Getting there though... Two painted and finished and 3 to go.

Porch floor is dry & Paige approves

Played porch this weekend

Last week I water blasted the crap out of our flakey porch. This weekend I scraped my heart out... Gaz did too. Once all the paint (and i mean all 10,000 layers) had been stripped back we sealed em up with an undercoat. We also prepped the concrete steps and Gaz used some fancy schmancy grey industrial floor paint to match the concrete and should last plenty of stomps. Good effort... Shits happening!

Porch time...

That's pretty much our whole porch in my hair. I water blasted the crap out of it ready for paint...
