I can almost smell our future barbecue adventures. We have taken on the project of putting pavers down in our yard. Home Depot quoted me some ridiculous amount, so in true Sahnow fashion, we decided to give it a go on our own. My family friend and old boss Gary has been helping with the technical aspect and we have called in lots of favors to get helpers. Although it looks at this point like a giant sand box, you can not believe what it has taken to get us to this point. over a 1,000 lbs of debris dug and wheelbarrowed out, over 20,800lbs of gravel and sand wheelbarrowed in and lots of sore muscles have gotten us to the point where we can start to think of what to do with the 4 and 1/2 pallets of pavers. I had no idea the mass amount of just moving heavy objects this was going to entail. the good news is that it should be done (weather permitting) in time to have some great bbq this summer. stay tuned for updates and get ready to help us prove that the work was worth it- we plan on having lots of company! ~Brittany
