I wish this was me by my pool today, but we're up to our ears in rubble and bricks. The "slightly out of vertical" section of the retaining wall by the pool is now horizontal (with a bit of help!), and the whole section is being rebuilt.
Then comes the bituminous waterproofing to the back of it (which I'm doing myself) and after its dried and cured for a few fine days, the back fill goes in and then the girl is ready for paint. Because I'm only replacing a section of the wall, and the wall goes from one side of the property right over to the other side, I'll be re-painting the old sections and painting the new to tie it all together. Currently charcoal is the colour of choice, but you know, that's subject to change!
Thanks everyone for a really sweet week, and many thanks to these cool kids for spreading the Diversions around the ether...
