And we've been a little frustrated about some things.
is eroding into the driveway. We have to grate it before we plant it and it keeps raining.
We paid a lot of money for gravel for this driveway and seed for the lawn. And the part that we did seed keeps running into the driveway, because of the rain. So now we have grass and mud for a driveway. It's lovely for the cars.
This is up by the house. Dave is trying to get it grated so we can plant stuff here, but he really needs to be working in the basement. We're thinking of hiring our neighbor to help us with this, even though it's some of Dave's favorite things to do.
The other thing we have actually lost sleep over is this....see that kind of indented area in the wall? It's for a fireplace. Above that, to the right, the 2x4's are not coming together and the one up by the ceiling is a rather large gap. The double balcony is on the front of this end of the house. What we were wondering is....is the double balcony sinking into the ground from all of the rain (settling) and is it pulling this end of the house down? Or did we just not notice that this is the way the framer built this? See the gap (below)
Then we had to get a family of wrens to move out of the house. Squatters already! I kept telling him there was a mamma bird coming in feeding babies somewhere. Apparently they were above the garage. We never did find the nest. But the babies were flying around everywhere on Saturday when Dave got there. Then on Sunday he found this little one.
When he took the bird outside to let him go by the woods, he flew back on the side of the house.
