Barn: the backfilling marches on...

Barn: the backfilling marches on...  Another 30 or 40 yards of pit run got dumped today.  The builder is hoping that all the needed pit run will be there by tomorrow.  Today they started leveling and compacting the pit run, 3 or 4 inches below the top of the foam board – the right height to provide a base for the next layer of pea gravel.

Rough leveling
Fine leveling, and compactor
In other news, the painters finished up with everything they could do at this point. They have a couple hours of work left after the flooring folks have finished with the stairways, but everything else is done.  I thought I'd memorialize the appearance of the garage, which will surely never look this good again.  Ever.


  1. For extra, out of the way storage, you can find racks that hang from the ceiling above the rolled up garage door. I had 4 of them up there.

    I think mine were HyLoft but something like these

  2. That is a great idea! I just found these Hyloft brackets on Amazon and ordered some: Thanks!!
