Step On It

This is the staircase that was built on the side of the house where the leak was.

Basically, they dug the dirt down, away from the foundation wall and then built stairs from the front of the property to the lower level in back.  I call the little ledge on the side a "smooch bench" because it's the perfect place to get a kiss!

And yes, they are the same bricks from the original fireplace that we've been using for this and this and this and this!

Another Brick in the Wall

Been traveling for work and have gotten a bit behind on the posts.

The guys finished covering the foundation in brick and built two little bumpouts next to the back door that I can sit plants on.

At the top of the door, you can see the wiring for the outdoor lights.  We bought them, but won't install until the deck for off the kitchen is done.
