Laying blocks: A Progress Report


Our kitchen extension project is moving along well thus far. No big snags, other than a few very soggy days. April in Upstate NY is extremely rainy. Although, this past week was beautiful and yesterday I actually broke a sweat while outside in a t-shirt! (I was raking leaves, but still…)

The drainage system is just about done, the footings are poured, and two levels of concrete block have been laid and mortared. Yesterday Teague put a bunch of small stone around the drainage pipe. I can’t believe how much he has gotten accomplished in the last few weeks. This project is his baby, so while he’s hard at work I’ve been gardening, raking, and doing general spring clean-up type stuff. Our flowers are grateful. My back is not as happy.

Here’s what the new foundation wall looked like a few days ago, when Teague was laying the second level of blocks:

It looks beautiful. (That may sound crazy, but knowing that you have a solid foundation is awesome.) I’m impressed with the progress!

Haha, thanks Trissa, I think it’s beautiful too!

We love to hear from you, dear readers.
