It's week three of the Spring 2021 One Room Challenge and just like that...all of the concrete in the backyard is officially gone and we are ready for a pool dig next week!
And by "just like that", I actually mean hours of back-breaking work jackhammering all of the concrete and loading it into the dumpster split between Joe, Chase and our amazing neighbor who is a GC. The concrete is actually taken to a place where it gets broken down into gravel size to be reused, which I thought was really cool. I helped as much as I could, but even the small slabs of broken up concrete are deceivingly heavy and I felt like I kept getting in the way. Of course I didn't give up the opportunity to climb into a dumpster for a photo op though😂
But now we have a clean slate (minus two bushes still) and that means it is time for a giant hole in the ground! It is also crazy how under about 6 inches of dirt, it is literally just sand, but hopefully that makes the actual pool dig easier. Fingers crossed!
Come back next week to check-in on the progress, it should be an exciting one for the dig! For more updates throughout the week be sure to follow along on Instagram and don’t forget to check out the progress of each of the Featured Designers and Guest Participants!
