After two years of planning:
Our view at lunchtime.
The guys finished the trench today and delivered gravel to lay at its base tomorrow.
I picked this block because they all cost the same and will be completely facing away from us. Isn't it pretty though?
This tube is going under the gravel to corral water away.
This was done entirely by hand - two guys, a pickax and a shovel. INSANITY!
If the weather cooperates they will be done on Tuesday.
I wasn't expecting them start until next week so the idea of having this done so soon has me GIDDY!
