Today's project

Today's project

Well the snow has finally melted away. The ground is still a little frozen though but I couldn't wait anymore.

We started the demolish cellar project last week by cutting down the trees around it and taking out the roots. Moving all the huge stones that were buried under the ground. The cutting of the trees into wood for the firepit and the chipping of branches has continued for the last few days.

Today the digger man came just after 8am and took away the huge amount of soil covering the cellar. Then I dashed to the rental store to borrow a Jack hammer to get through the concrete. I rented it for 2 days but took it back after 2 hours as we had completed the job with the jack hammer and the sledgehammer. Yes they did let me loose with the sledgehammer (fools they areπŸ˜›)

The digger guy left the digger here and came back and filled in the hole and cleaned up the garden. I am now buggered and my arm is telling me not to use the sledgehammer again for a whileπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Tomorrow continues chipping the rest of the branches, chopping the wood and moving the stones to a place of storage until I use them again.

Hopefully by Thursday everything will be done and we can chill over the Easter weekend and start again next week.

Now off to sit my sore legs and arms in the sauna and relax with youngest daughter that turned 14 today πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‚

Some pics from today's progress

Good week to all

  • Hi Janpes

    That is a big job you got going on! Just think of the calories burnt in swinging that sledgehammer!!

    Enjoy your relaxing sauna and happy 14th birthday with your daughter.


  • A huge job, but after not seeing the garden for almost 5 months we are also glad to be outside and enjoying the fresh air. OK in minus 30 the air is certainly freshπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
