If you wonder where all our money goes look no further, here it is:
Nick, our (everybody now) super duper pooper scooper septic system excavooter, started digging the hole for our septic tank. Now what you see here is only half the hole, and it is only for one of two tanks (of pretty much equal size).
That's a lot of dirt that comes out of the ground, which has to go somewhere. What better to do with it than create a patio. Looks pretty good already, but wait until it's all done.
We, meanwhile, worked on making the front of the house look prettier and more complete. E! replaced the siding to the left of the main entrance, which was a lot easier than scraping and painting.
