|Garden area ready for gravel|
Friday, I went to the dreaded Home Depot with Annmarie. I needed some boards for the heat pump enclosure and Heath was out back digging up the garden area. So progress was being made while I went shopping. We picked up the cedar boards for the enclosure and two sets of risers for the stairs, a two and three stepper. They are not cheap, but I did not want to cut them!! I also picked up some pressure treated 2x12 for the actual steps. I am still not sure how I am going to attach them to the concrete yet. There area multitude of ways, and I have not settled on the easiest way yet. I will probably just assemble the steps and see how they fit then decide how to attach them. Annmarie wanted to go look at closet kits. I will be putting in a real closet kit in our walk in closet soon. It is coming. We got a smattering of rain yesterday, not enough to do anything but hopefully the mountains that are burning up will get some precipitation. I had big plans on going out and painting the front fence but it is starting to look like rain again. Since the stain is water soluble, I don't think that will be a good idea. I will check the weather forecast. I may have to finish cleaning up the garden area by the back gate. There is a pile of dirt there that needs to be moved then the dirt on the backside of the fence needs to be raked out and flattened.
