    Progress! I'm getting there but I'm out of gravel again. I've consistently under-estimated the amount of materials I need on this project. So I'm hoping I have enough stone. So I'm on hold again until I get more gravel. The gravel is cheap, but delivery is not. I had gotten another ton on Sunday and rented a UHaul pickup to do it with, but with all of the effort and time and such I only saved $20 compared to having it delivered. In retrospect I would have gladly paid and extra $20 to have it delivered. Such is life.

    I did the same thing with my sand/Sharp sand/ballast.

    Constantly underestimated it haha. Thought 1 tonne would be enough first. Then ordered 2 tonnes after that.


    This is going to look great.
