Concrete progress – destruction in pictures

It’s going to be lovely, but here’s the current state of destruction at my house …

This is my driveway (no garage for my car for the next week or two).

Our poor pool has lost its diving board and pool deck.

Jack hammered into submission and left in a pile in the black space where the expanded pool deck will be poured.

The pile of rubble that was once our side yard/RV pad and 3 adobe planer boxes.

It will be worth it, it will be very nice when it’s all done, but today … WHAT A MESS!!!

  1. I was hoping you’d post pics! I was trying to envision all the mess and work – haha! I’m sure it will look awesome when done and those cranky old neighbors will be complimenting you 🙂

    • I’m not holding my breath on the neighbors, but we are really looking forward to enjoying the finished project. The extra concrete space in the back will be nice for gatherings with family and friends, and M is so looking forward to the big giant RV pad to work on cars and projects.
