The Backyard is Changing

 The backyard is getting some attention this year. Jim muscled some 6x6's into place to create a retaining wall for the back walk out. He used up the left over moisture barrier from the ICF basement walls to provide water-proofing for the wood.

We have also added a few new trees to the back. 4 Evans Cherry and 7 May Day's are praying for rain.  We water regularly but nothing is as effective as rain.

The hill between the house and the shop has been refined to accommodate the garage door into the shop. Jim is on the hunt for rocks to "Rip-Wrap" the bank and prevent it from returning to it's original state. Believe it or not, field rocks are hard to come by...especially when you want them for free.
