Construction Junction

<Trumpets blaring>  Juliet has entered the blogosphere:




And to think, just a couple of weeks ago she looked like this.


As it is a bulky yarn, all I did was spray block the bottom to flatten out the edge.  Really a fast knit and fun to do...even if it does have lace in it.  The weather is supposed to cool down quite a bit this weekend, so it is going to get broken in.  


Tentatively planning on working on the never-ending house remodel this weekend...outside portion.  We hope to have use of a friend's dump trailer to finally get rid of the ginormous sassafras stump that has been uprooted but left in the backyard since the foundation was dug and poured for the addition close to four years ago.  The chunks of patio (also from when the foundation was poured) complete with rebar in them will also hopefully be leaving at the same time.  It has been a long process (always is when you do it yourself) but all that is left is the tedious trim/finish stuff inside before a couple of reno's to the old portion of the house.  The activities to begin this weekend will allow Wes to bring in a front end loader to push around/rearrange the backyard dirt.  All of this has to be done before the boulders can be placed at the lake edge or the stream from the pond dug/rocked or the dock work started or even more importantly before my raised beds can be put in.  Once the beds are in place access to the backyard with equipment larger than a riding mower will essentially be blocked.  Slowly, but surely, we are getting there!  Sadly, though, you never really are done!


Construction phase is finished for a lot of people and their masterpieces are on display at Tami's.
