THIS IS DIY

We’re so thrilled that our Remodel Extravaganza is finally underway! We decided to begin with the landscaping, so that once we had the koi pond situated we would know how large of a swimming pool to install.

Also, we decided  to wipe the slate clean, and dispose of these scarred maples–what an eyesore!

Have I mentioned my husband DH is really into DYI? And of course, anything powered by diesel. We’re very concerned for  the environment,  so we eschew gas-powered equipment. Our landscaping project necessitated this adorable excavator.

Progress was extraordinarily swift. Men like this were born to clear the land! The stuff our pioneering forefathers were made of.

Isn’t that excavator so cute?

After the removal of the giant ancestral maple trees, which will be warming the house for winters to come in our vintage woodstove (more on that in another post!), we set about sculpting the yard.

The waterfalls and pond require special drainage and plumbing. I’m so thrilled for the  end results!
