Yesterday he put the posts for the retaining walls in - and today he started with the walls. Only a few in when I visited at lunchtime - but it was all happening fast. The plan is to get the retaining walls in ASAP, then start on the concrete pad for the paving/seating area.
The start of the retaining walls.
These will run along the Southern boundary
and across the back of the property.
In the back looking North to where the
redbrick circular seating feature will be.
Looking back to the South which will be lawn
with the kids' cubby house recessed in to the South/East corner
Close up (taken from meals area)
of the kids' cubby spot.
The concreters were back today, too, to 'expose' the concrete for the side path. It's looking great - and I am really pleased we've had it done. The kids will LOVE a big path to ride their bikes.
Porch meets side path
Looking down the side from the front.
Pretty soon a water tank will sit there
behind a new fence/gate.
So pleased we had this done :)
Looking back down
from the back to the front!
Concreters will be back on Saturday to finish the crossover and footpath, and pour a pad for Sean's shed. In the meantime fencer is coming on Friday to put some posts up, and Warren is hoping to have the concrete pad for the outdoor paving in ASAP. So exciting!
