Why is it that when one thing gets done, it starts a chain of follow up jobs that need to be completed to make it all look the way you want!!
We were able to get the second step to the front done over the weekend. Our friendly neighbour, Dave the deck builder, took time out of his busy schedule to get it done for us.
We left the original deck too long before we oiled it so now we are going to have to wait a few months for the new wood to age and then we will oil it so it looks the same (that's the plan anyway).
Now that this has been finished I can also pull up the original paving and get it done properly. I'm going to put large format pavers (same as the ones out the back) and get rid of the pebbles. It annoys me to have the bark fall into the pebbles all the time and it never looks neat.
Also need to re-plant the cordyline in the black pot.
Once this is all done ... the path to the front door will be done.
Just in time for our 12 month inspection!!
Boy this stuff takes a long time.
More exciting however ... should only be 10 days or so away before the X-Box couch arrives. You know who is never going to move out of the bedroom every Sunday don't you!!!
