Finally Done with Some Projects

It has been a while since I've posted. We have been extremely busy as always. But, we have good news. The building/shed and the mailbox are finished!!! In fact, they have been finished for some time now! We finished both of these projects in the same weekend .... about 2 weeks ago. As you can see in the pictures, it has been a very hot summer and all of our grass is dead and gone. I think we'll be reseeding in the fall.

Here is the finished building. We are just going to stain the ramp but everything else is done. It is so wonderful! It holds all of our lawn equipment... both lawnmowers, rakes, tools,etc. We are excited to get the garage cleaned out and be able to park our cars in it!
The finished product! Good job E!

We also cleaned up the mailbox mess and rebuilt a new one. I think it looks great although it was very hard work. We were so ready to just be done with the whole affair that we set up lights outside and worked into the night. We only wanted to rent the wet brick saw for 1 day. But it's done! Plus, by doing it ourselves we were able to take the insurance money and apply it to our Dave Ramsey "Get out of debt plan" Woo hoo!!

Erin,
I was just looking at your two home projects and marveled at the craftsmanship. You have really honed your building skills and I am so proud of you Son. I think you are capable of any home improvement project thrown your way.
Love Dad
