Kevin has finished the stone wall; the one right beside the house and above the river. The soil was eroding and there was very little room to walk on that side of the house. With the new wall, Kevin's managed to stop further erosion, which is great! He's also been filling the gaping trench with dirt found on the property. He's got half of the trench filled... just the other half to do now. So, just to recap, Kevin walked down to the river, picked out some medium sized stones and lugged them up the bank. He did this countless times. That alone was hard work. Then, he had to mix cement and sand to 'glue' the stones in place. And he had to do all this as early as possible in the morning to allow it to set before the rain came in the afternoon.
Everything feels strong and safe. I'm seriously impressed.
