    Here are some pics of a paver sidewalk installation that I am doing at my house for my parents. My dad and brothers were also helping out on the 2 days I had borrowed the backhoe from my Uncle. I dug down 9 inches, for a length of 75 feet at 5 feet wide- A lot of dirt! I put down 4 inches of gravel, then 2 inches of crushed stone, then 1 inch of masons sand then put the pavers on top. I will post more pics as the sidewalk progresses. I am squeezing it in between lawns and other jobs. What do you think?

    No, I just don't want pictures of me all over the internet- ever hear of something called identity theft?

    Yeah, I already stole that Kubota's identity using the photo. Should have blurred it too.

    I'm curious...Where you making much money when you started your business 6 years ago at 9 years old?

    I've never actually started it before :) It just gave me a serious chuckle thinking about a 9 year old running a business.

    "3 wheelbarrows, 6 barrels, shovels, rakes etc."

    do you really have 6 barrels? I only have 4. You're two steps ahead of me friend
