This week involved a lot of mudd. Erosion control, fighting with piedmont gas, landscaping, and painting.

Hopefully after this weeks efforts my neighbours back porch won't be a mudd fest. The main thing that I did was divert the water that runs from the front right side of the house into my neighbours side yard. At one time, before the addition and all of the side yard excavation, that was the waters natural flow. The water was cleaned by grass and etc. I placed 2 x 12's as the base of the side fence, stapled landscape fabric to it, added a base of rock, and covered it with an out. 2 feet of mulch. There will be a large planter added to the other side of the fence that will catch any other water passing through. I also added a silt fence along the back property line to aide with the lots erosion issues. With these two things in place I should be good to go.

I also had my guys dig out the water line trench in the backyard. I picked up 200ft of cpvc to run in it. That should be added in next week. That will give the garden and garden shed water access.

I also added plants to the front flower beds. I chose perennials that can take shade with minimal sun. I also picked up a set of old iron furniture for the side patio area. Mixed with swivel eames chairs I picked up. With everything out there it is starting to look pretty hip. I have some ipe wood that I am building some planters out of for the side over the weekend. More to come

Painting. Stanley and barry have been getting it done. The sun room is chaulked and primed. Jerry and I spent thursday cleaning the first floor out prepping for them. More to come.

Ballard electrical came in and got the downstairs wired up. We have lights! They also wired up the sun room receptacles. I also had ellis lock come and install new locks on the front and side doors.

The house finally has gas. After several heated conversations with piedmont gas and trip to the city by my father. A new meter is in place. Lawson heating and air will be there next week to cut over the furnace and tank less water heater.

Well that is about it. If you see me over the weekend and want a tour stop in. Also see you at the preservation trusts new store grand opening downtown spartanburg.
