Almost a month on, and things are finally starting to come together. The lawn is taking nicely, the driveway is looking good, and the fence is doing its job of keeping the dog in the backyard. Even inside, the house is starting to feel like a home – and it better! The last four weekends have been nothing but back-breaking work. The final tally (at least thus far) for soil moved is just over 20 tons. Thanks to our neighbours, it wasn’t a completely exhausting task.
There’s a lot more to be done of course, but thankfully we’ve got the upcoming weekend to get things looking a little more organised. Next week, my family arrive for the holidays from overseas. The local population grows from two to eight! While we may rush to get the house cleaned and tidy, we’re seriously looking forward to the holidays. Sharing the new house with friends and family over Christmas has been what we’ve really been looking forward to over the past few months. And on that note, we share our home with you…enjoy, and Happy Holidays!
