The kids were very eager to help out:
You'd be forgiven to assume this was an abandoned rural lot, not our inner city backyard. This is how our tenants maintained the gardens:
However the scary part is we actually paid someone to manage the property for us. I'm still wondering what it was that they did other than take a percentage of the rent?
So now that the yard is mowed and pruned
t hirteen cubic metres of green waste later, the kids have a place to romp around before construction commences. We hope to have a signed contract along with a confirmed commencement date with the builder in the next week or so.
And during my holiday, I changed my mind and have decided upon some different floor tiles for the bathrooms. (Note to self - change these on the schedule.) I'll let you know about them later.
