yeah, we decided we're not moving. not that we were really thinking of it, but did have a talk or two. Home improvements is the way we're going to go. We replaced 10 of the windows, all hardwoods throughout, and some other major changes. No need to move. Next is a possible build out, bathroom in the basement, and remodeling the en suite.
pay via paypal, use credit card,file dispute at the 20 day mark if suspicious. don't deal with noobs. don't trade with noobs. request feedback ahead of time. there are lots of good people 'round here.

Yep, improvements for days for sure. We have some nice projects lined up this summer pretty pumped!

Lucky for you that you don't have to bury below a frost line. That's a hell of a long run. No chance you could drill your own well and have a septic system?

I acquired the art for my brother-in-laws retreat house outside of Orlando. Did a Tom Whalen Disney theme in the theatre room. This house is also available for weekly rentals...

These pictures don't do any justice, I guess more or so just showing the soon to be evolution of this area. The vision, soon to be reality, is a massive sun flower garden. Next steps are Railroad ties to enclose about 1 1/2 feet of soil that I'm going to be adding on top. Will be starting the seeds inside in a few weeks here.

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY RECS AS FAR AS TREATING THE DIRT THATS DOWN NOW FOR WEED PROTECTION?

It's 85 feet long x 7 feet wide. It was over grown with brush, packed with stone, had multiple weed barriers laid down about a foot deep, roots of plants and trees, and more stone.

So much stone was moved by me over the last two weekends. The pick-axe is my new favorite tool for sure. Already had a landscaping company take a lengths worth of stone for a project. After this weekend I put down the same amount that I'm going to have to remove on my own it seems. But we removed so much stone here that once I add new soil it's going to be fantastic.

I've always had good luck with a landscape fabric from Menards. I buy the 30 year. I also treat the ground with agricultural strength Round Up.

I just removed so much of the weed barrier stuff.

I'm going to avoid putting it down moving forward. Sure I might have my work cut out for me with maintaining but we're done with the barrier.
