Sixty bags or as Chuck likes to tell me 3600 lbs of concrete. Remember a few years ago when I posted about a leak in a drain pipe? Well, the hole has been here for what seems like forever. Chuck did use scrap wood to cover it so it wasn't like we were falling in the hole while on the back porch.
We don't have credit cards and needed the funds to finish this project. You know how it goes... when we had the time there was no money and when there was money there was no time. Finally time and money came together to get this done.
Megan loves to help out. She carried down a piece of 2x4 that was used as a frame.
Saturday was a chilly day and our crew showed up nice and early. Here my dad (in the shorts) and my father-in-law are helping Chuck.
Almost done and I was starting to get excited!
After all of their hard work I thought it was only right to feed the crew.
Nothing better on a chilly day then a nice pot of chili. That was served along with toasted cheese and homemade apple crisp.
I am so happy (and so is Chuck!) to have this project marked off of the list.
