Home Projects

    We are beginning to take more responsibility for our house…and needing to make some “investments”.

    This summer we realized the need to fix our driveway. We had a deep sinkhole between the driveway and the garage. After a few estimates, we decided to hire someone to install a 6-foot concrete apron.

    This caused a few chain reactions. First, we noticed the state of the asphalt for the rest of our driveway and decided to have it sealcoated. Then, the concrete guys removed garden and sidewalk pavers in order to install the cement. Of course, the pavers would not fit back into place. After a few conversations with our favorite Home Depot employees we decided to cut the pavers ourselves. According to my father’s advice to Jesse “Every project requires a new tool”, we bought a specialized diamond blade for our circular saw. Jesse spent the better part of a day cutting and leveling our walkway.

    Now we are considering planting new grass seed in our front yard. Gotta love the fall…

    1. Ooh, I am very interested in the cutting part of this story. Was it a wet or dry cut? How deep did he go? Did he wear his protective gear? Nothing beats a good, hard concrete story.

    2. Ah yes, the cutting. It was much easier than I thought it would be! I didn’t actually cut the concrete, I took the easier route and cut the pavers (Sorry to disappoint Eric!) I only had to cut four, they were about 1 foot long and 2 inches deep. It was dusty, but not too bad. Boy Eric, you sure have been spending a lot of time around cutting concrete! =)
