Sure hope we like the look of them, as I think they’re going to be here for awhile! Maybe they’ll look nice with Christmas lights wrapped around them??

cute little manitou bringing in the stone!

wait there’s more

ch-ching!

When we moved in, we took all the brick from the patio and used it to put a brick floor in the barn–priorities, people!! It looks really great in the barn, but now we’ve had a gravel patio for a few years. And alas, with our crazy house, it’s about the drainage issues. We’ve had some plumbing work done and they dug out a trench in the patio for our water line. It’s just never been the same since, and we’re getting water in the basement. We need to replace the patio and hope this helps direct the run off away from the basement!

How better to address the real issue (water in the basement) than by buying some new patio stone??! Amazingly we got into the crawl space today to try and figure out what’s going on, as looking at the size of these stones–you don’t want to be relaying them any time soon!! We also noticed that our new downspouts are also leaking–directly into the basement. Sigh!! Will we ever figure this place out??

what now?

Here’s the doode doing some preliminary excavating work and hard thinking!
