After a great deal of work using the minidigger which I borrowed from my neighbour, plus a fair amount of backbreaking work with a shovel, I now have a completed yard and driveway. I could have done with all of this parking space a few years back when I had loads more cars! There’s still plenty of work to do to finish the job such as putting in an edging along the side of it and some paving (the existing concrete paths are getting paved with Victorian Diamond pattern bricks). I also need to take up all of the concrete next to the house and grass that area. It’s really nice to have lots of space in the yard though, especially as it’s no longer muddy when it rains. I had the opportunity to roll the surface with a huge industrial vibrating roller so it’s now compacted hard enough to jack cars up on. I’m keen to get the ground work finished as I want to start on the workshop itself… new cladding, an extension and new window frames. Lots more work!
