Cleaning Up the Rubble:Backyard Remodel Part 1

Rubble 1
Karen and I have been working on our house off and on ever since we have been married.  We are really good at starting projects and getting them about 85% done.  About the time we are a couple of steps away from finishing we start another project.  For example, we tiled, painted, and accessorized the guest bathroom now all we have to do is just put in the granite countertops and refinish the vanity.  The countertops and vanity have been waiting for about a year now.  It seems like right before we do the most expensive step we decide to go ahead and work on something else.  Our priorities are to get as much done as we can before we have to put down the big bucks to do the last finishing touches.
Clearing the Rock

Well, with all these projects that we have been doing we have built up a pretty big pile of rubble in our backyard that needed to be cleaned up.  Karen and I finally had to do something about it because our backyard was just suffering.  So, we checked out prices for renting a dumpster and found a reasonable one on Craigslist.  We got it for 14 days and just wouldn’t you know it, as soon as we ordered the dumpster we have had 100+ degree temperatures ever since.
Rubble 2

It has been a little bit of a rough go at it, but the backyard rubble is pretty much gone.  I am sure before it is all done and dusted we be ordering another dumpster, but at least now we have a place to put the next round of rubble.
