It was a nice warm day for a little of this and a little of that. The red columns got painted all the way to the bottom. Gravel was spread to reduce the splashing of dirt onto the columns. Lumber was sorted and tidied. A bit more trim was applied to the sewer insulation box. The beginning of the end of the mices in the floor was tended to with spray foam insulation in the larger gaps. Once that dries and is trimmed a silicone caulk will be applied in the smaller gaps.
All the stuff that had accumulated on the basement patio was removed. It was looking so very nice I wanted to eliminate the clutter. It is rather striking when seen from the road particularly when the sun is shining on the dry stack stone walls.
Tomorrow I just might finish painting this side of the cabin.
The basement patio is looking mighty fine. I like how it is turning out.
There is more work to do to reach completion. The upper wall needs to be topped off. The landing stones in the foreground may need to be lowered a touch. There is a planned step up as you exit the patio on this end. I just need to measure and be sure it will end up as a standard rise for a step. More gravel needs to be added for the base of a future stone floor.
A little over two years ago an idea popped into my head while standing under the cabin in the rain. A patio was born. I have moved a lot of rocks, a lot of gravel and a lot of dirt.
It is looking mighty fine.
