You know, I thought we’d move in the house and the decision stuff would lessen. I was wrong.
Saturday Hubby brought the skid loader to the house here and started working on the yard. It’s a mess….a bad mess but much better than it was two weeks ago. At least now it isn’t muddy.
Hubby loves skid loader work.
I was so happy that he was able to improve the approach coming into the garage and leveled the driveway off.
After he was done with that he came in the house and got me….it was decision time. I hate making decisions….
Well the cement guys will be here in a couple weeks and we need to decide what we want to do with the the back entry way. Right now the back looks like this.
The plan is to make a cement pad that is the width of the garage coming away from the house and will be the length of the house. Eventually we will put a deck coming out the upper story with a stairs coming down and turning towards the back garage door.
Where the decision comes in is this…Do we put in a lower cement slab that will be lower so that the lawn will be even with the ground or do we raise the cement, making it higher than the ground so that we would have to step off it to get to the yard.
There are advantage and disadvantages to both. At this point I am leaning towards the second option with the raised cement…It costs a little more but I think it will look more like a “patio” and less like a cement slab.
Honestly, neither Hubby nor I have a huge desire for it to be either way…at this point we just want it done.
What do you think? We only have a few more days before we have to make a decision.
