Work actually didn't get started in earnest until Tuesday afternoon, but here's where we were as of Friday afternoon:
The front yard is mostly cleared and the new brick step up from the sidewalk is completed. The Tasmanian Tree Ferns have been transported to their new home.
Mixing concrete and setting footings for the new deck. These will have to set and harden over the weekend. Rob says he'll start working on the rest Monday morning and the deck should be done by Tuesday afternoon.
Here's what's left of the old trellis...
The backyard looks REALLY different without it.
But the new one will actually cover more area.
The rental jackhammer was no match for this old concrete...
so they're coming back tomorrow with a backhoe!
Think we're going to want to be Somewhere Else while that's in progress.
