Building the foundation

"Now if any man builds upon the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each man's work will become evident; for the day will show it, because it is to be revealed with fire; and the fire itself will test the quality of each man's work." 1 Corinthians 3:12-13

Remember seeing our gold, silver, precious stones, and wood? Today I'm going to elaborate on wood.
After playing with Legos, we're ready to build the walls!!!

New front steps: once we placed a few timbers at the correct width and height,Eric cut the timbers with the chainsaw to stagger the seams. A warped timber made a great work surface.


Maybe the chainsaw didn't work as well as we had hoped.

On to Plan B.

Do we have a Plan B?

Now we do! And Plan B worked like a charm!!
(Landscaping can be an expensive hobby.)

Ladies, this was the scene after we quit for the day: filthy, dirty feet!

Mind you, I was wearing shoes AND socks the whole day.

Bath time lasted a few minutes longer that night. :)
