operation: retaining walls

So we finally took the plunge and ordered the materials for our retaining walls. There was a little bit of a delay in delivery as the Appin Stonemill were experiencing difficulty with their machines, but the time went rather quick and everything was delivered faster than expected.

Mark has started putting down the base to begin laying the blocks but it was kind of depressing seeing him dig all of the solid rock out for the trenches and only fill them back up again. I know it's for a reason and our walls will be alot sturdier this way.

I am so excited to see the progress.

flyscreens... done.

Well, it's definitely been a while since I have updated my blog but with Christmas and all the craziness that follows, it feels like not much has been done around the house.

But as I look back on the past 3 months, I am quite suprised at all the little things we have accomplished and am very excited at the plans that we have in store for our beautiful home.

Our flyscreen for the bifold window in our kitchen was done recently. I love it so much.
