The basement floor of the shop is already for the concrete. With any luck we can get it poured within a couple of weeks. Once that is accomplished, the shop is ready for the winter.
We bought a 6' Colorado Spruce from Canadian Tire and added it to our tree collection in the front yard. It's supposed to be very drought resistant...YAY!! Jim has been putting in a front sidewalk of interlocking brick which has turned out very nicely.
