    ok...here is the old homestead
    First pic is shortly after move in, second pic is abut 2 years later when I started the front step and wall project, the last pic is the finished project, although I did pull down and tighten up the wall after this pic was taken

    My next project with int he next 2 weeks will be to remove the 2 layers of asphalt and install 6x6 tumbled pavers for the drive way.

    The driveway is the last project, I will have done the following to the house, Siding, windows, all new exterior doors, new HVAC, full remodel inside, kitchen bath rooms, tile floors, paint, and all new trim inside as well...I'll wait until the dog dies and the daughter moves out to do the carpet. Its almost a new house again...

    I will also tear out some of the front step area to straighten it out i had some weird settling after a water leak...

    Yeah I'll take a couple when the pavers get dropped...Especially now that all the plants are grown up...grasses and nandinia and some salvia and some hosta and a few pots.

    Heck you just want to see my crooked steps...:)

    I wouldn't be a very good hardscaper if I did. The quality of a job is in the details.

    Maybe the way im looking at it, but the wall doesent look right. Is it the product or is there gaps between it. Also it looks like one block is very un level where it was stepped. Im probably wrong because chris would of picked up on it.
