New Parking Pad
Living in a townehome community, the parking can get pretty tight on a good day. Let someone have a party or have company over and parking becomes a real nightmare. Couple that with the fact that the hubby is the auto mechanic for our 4 vehicles, and an off street parking pad is a complete necessity.
But before any car could be parked there, we had to do a little reinforcing. The sewer clean out just happens to be in that area that we wanted to use for parking. So that meant the pipe had to be reinforced around with cinder blocks to keep from crushing the pipe and causing thousand of dollars to fix the sewer line.
We also had to move one of our raised vegetable beds to the side and re route the fence. We still need to replace a piece of the chain link fencing and will do so when I get a chance to pick up a roll from Home Depot.
Gotta say that this project was finished just in time as the hubby is already hard at work on some much needed auto repairs to my car.
Until next time....
