Thanks guys!

I would've went with gravel or asphalt millings because of cost, but the covenant of the neighborhood requires either an asphalt or concrete drive.

I was told if you use asphalt millings after a year of them compacting you can seal coat them. Supposedly looks pretty good after.

New roof going up today. These guys are crazy fast. They have all the shingles off the roof in an hour and a half. Now the loudness begins...

Asphalt millings hey. I'll have to remember that.
I'm going to have my drive scraped and leveled soon then put in some concrete edging to make maintenance easier. Then I might put a layer of that milling in.


Shed slab was poured yesterday! Very happy with it

so we finally moved in over the weekend! got the keys Friday 17th. Has been a hectic few days moving everything but we can finally sit and enjoy it now.
Figured id share a few pics of the final product seeing as I spammed this thread throughout the build. More of an art tour, but whatever.

Hey, I've got that duck.

Nice vibe going throughout the house with similar themed/toned art. Nicely done.

Are you going for a lawn front or growing a garden instead?

She LOVES that duck. that's the 3rd one we've had to buy.

thanks mate. Going with a front lawn for the sort term. Get that up to scratch, and then add some garden beds here and there. I've already got a few dotted around the place, but with an acre block there's a lot to do.

Does anyone know if it is ok to put a chest freezer on a carpeted floor? I just moved mine today and found a few square feet of damp carpeting underneathit. My first thought was that there was some condensation under the freezer making the floor damp so we moved the freezer to a room with tile flooring. My second thought was that moving this freezer just happened to coincide with a significant amount of rain we've gotten this week and this is located on exterior wall in the basement. We've only lived here since January and the freezer was purchased new at that time also.

my chest freezer occasionally (well, rarely, but it does happen) leaks stuff (its a new, good freezer too), so id be hesitant to put it on carpet.
