We completed our Fire Deck a few months ago, but still had some final touches to do to finish things off. We are almost there… but after the week we have just had we thought it was time to fire up the fire pit and see how everything works.
So we did 🙂
Heavy rain continued to fall through Thursday morning and we could hear and see water pouring down the mountain in lots of places.
We knew there would be more ‘damage’ to the road, and possibly to areas of our property too… so ventured out again when the rain eased.
We had good rain through the beginning of March, and in fact quite a bit more than average. By the end of the month we had had around 200mm, which is more than twice the monthly average.
This wasn’t all bad, as we had just moved our main water tank, and needed good rain to fill it.
When we purchased Arborlon 18 mths or so ago, one of the existing problems we knew about was the footings that supported the SW corner of the house. They were in bad shape and needed repairing/replacing. So much so that there is a 50mm drop in the floor of our lounge room from one side to the other.
Unfortunately we needed to support other elements of the hill the house is built on, before we could get to actually permanently fixing the damaged and broken footings.
We purchased a Baumr-AG 75cc Post Hole Digger via EBay in May 2016.
