It's all done.
After we got back from church we went to work on the last of the gravel and by about 6 it looked like this:
That's a nice picture.
We had a little too much gravel, better too much then too little.
The whole side of the house is gravel anyway so I just spread it out.
And it's done.
Of course if your a home owner you know that it's never really done.
The air conditioner is still strapped to the wall and I want to put a gate/fence up.
Then I want to build a shed it the back corner next to the tree. We laid down some gravel in the corner and I'm going to use some of the paving stones as the floor. I couldn't leave the paving stones on the grass so Nola and I moved all of them.
Anyway I'm glad that it's done. I figure I probably saved myself about $6000 by doing it myself. That said I hope I never have to do it again.
Thanks to Nola, Mom and Dad, Nig and Reeves (thought that counts) for all your help. I couldn't have done it without you and I really appreciate it.
So that's the end of our basement repairs. Now it's time to renovate the inside... eventualy.
