    Summer Projects 2015

    So what is everyone planning for projects this Year/Summer?
    As for me, Damage Control.
    I have a lot of things to fix or repair. Since the summer of 2011 I have been into adding stuff or having big projects planned and not so much into upkeep.

    - taking down an old corn crib,
    - continuing remove many, many trees in prep for putting in a pond someday

    Whats that, maybe a weeks worth of work?? Should probably find more to do! :LOL:

    The main project for the summer will be building a new shop. The plan will be to build a 30' x 40' that will house all of the lawn equipment, yard tools, 4 wheeler, gator and the tractor when I have it here. The one that I have (20' x 20' ) was suppose to be a work shop but with all of the lawn equipment crammed in there it has turned into more of a storage building. The other big item on my list is to improve the hunting property that we acquired last year by cleaning up some fallen trees and remove piles of brush that were left when a dozier pushed out food plots. All of this will start after I finish the bathroom remodel that was started a couple of weeks ago, should be done in about 2 weeks.

    Of course all of the above is subject to change if the wife puts another project on the list that is deemed more important

    In no particular order:
    1) New kitchen floor, countertops, backsplash, and OTR microwave.
    2)Redo a rock garden in front yard.
    3) Rock around top of septic tank.
    4) install two new gates around garden and repair a third.
    5) build two shoe racks, a bookcase, a display shelf and a model of the Cape Haterras lighthouse.
    6) fix a retaining wall
    7) regrade yard on driveway edges so 60" MMM fits the space
    8) relocate blueberry bushes
    9) repair/replace several pieces of siding
    10). Seed area where rock is currently that will go around septic tank.
    11) sort out rocks, by hand, from dirt from rock garden. Dirt goes in low spots, rocks go in landscaping west side of garage.
    12) replace the other two toilets

    Last year we did a lot of underground sewer, drain & electrical work next door to our home. We also put in a new drive to our pole barn.

    We let everything to settle over the winter. Now this year we have a lot of dirt to move & level. Then back fill along the new driveway with the extra dirt from the other areas.

    We will also be topping off the driveway with finer gravel & replace 15 squares of roofing on an unattached garage.

    Then I may look into down sizing a tractor.
