I was at the quarry again today with my little sister T-rex. When I arrived Dan had three piles of shale all ready to go so T-rex and I loaded the truck in a flash.
At THO there is now enough stone to finish the patio as well as the path down the West side of the house. There is more than I need this year as well. I am planning on 3 or four more trips to the quarry to get all the stone I need to finish the planned work for next year too. This is because my brother in law is retiring his truck at the end of this month, so getting all the stone now is sensible and inexpensive. Grandma used to call this sort of planning “a stitch in time”, you may already know the adage.
The temperatures here have climbed with the humidity so the job gets more difficult and uncomfortable. Hopefully next week the temperatures will drop a little so that the levelling job will not be so miserable.
This is taking a long time because it is the first experience I have with this sort of work.
