Work bench complete!

I add some shelving above the pegboard, completing the work bench, and maximizing storage on the south wall of the garage.

With this, I’m able to empty much of the basement in preparation for the drain tile project.

A little backyard landscaping

We decide to take a break from basement prep, and do a little backyard landscaping project. Amáda uses the river boulders and mulch for her garden borders. Meanwhile, I use the retaining wall blocks as a dressing around the longest leg of the deck.
