We managed to cram in one last project before the end of our summer break. Our garden path is now complete after about two weeks of labor and seven tons of gravel. Check out the video to see how it all started. Thanks to our friends Lauren and Frank for lending a helping hand and a handy truck bed, and of course to our trusty neighbor Rob for his constant advise, support and wheelbarrow loads. Below is a before and after shot of our front yard… If only I knew what we were getting ourselves into!

  5. Chris and Julia,

    Great video and perfect music. I admire you two for how hard you’re working to finish your home. While the tiller work tested you, the preparation work had to be a killer too. You’ll need to return to school just to rest yourselves. Can’t wait to see your place.

    Love,
    Uncle David
