{Water Control Project Finished}

Almost doing the happy dance! On January 21, the crew came to pour the concrete. 
Water Control Project Finished!
Of course, such a job could not be handled by husband Pieter...
The big truck arrived and by wheelbarrow the concrete was brought to the spot.
That meant ACTION!
NO cat-supervisors now; they're all hiding as they are scared of strangers...
Thick consistency makes it heavy to handle...
Dumping it onto a wooden board and than spreading it out...
Husband Pieter made them this wooden beam for leveling it; just extending across the aluminum gutter.
They do a great job!
Cake art in the rough...
Smoothing it really well.
Six days later; all dried up and looking very nice!
This is the bay window kitchen area...
Pieter showing how neat they worked around the aluminum gutter. They did an excellent job and understood quite well what Pieter wanted.
The other side of the bay window towards the front porch.
This is from the retainer wall looking towards the front porch.
It did dry out nicely.
Detail of the aluminum gutter and the Scallop Concrete Edger...
When the danger of frost will be gone, those 20 x 20 cm or 8 x 8 inch tiles will be put on!
Will show you later the tiled job.
Do you like it?

  2. Lieve Mariette,

    Wat een fantastische oplossing zo!!
    Straks enkel nog de goot schoonhouden van bladeren.
    Het betegelde gedeelte wat aankleden met planten in potten of bakken en het zal er mooi uitzien.

    Lieve groet,

      Ja, we waren er zó blij mee en net op tijd klaar voor de Vorst en afgelopen week weer vorst met natte sneeuw... Precies ja, aankleden met wat potplanten en het kan makkelijk met de slang met water afgespoten worden en ook de goot uitgespoten.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

      This has to work; I am very confident and it gives us peace of mind. Our kitties are less happy but they still have plenty of garden left for romping and rolling. That sand box was temporarily and not for them!

  17. Hello Mariette, You were lucky to get such a professional job done on the concrete--even paying a lot of money does not always guarantee good results. I am looking forward to seeing how it all comes out.

    I don't think I have seen a tiled border for a house quite like this, but it makes a lot of sense. It also has an unexpected, old-fashioned quality. Foundation plantings are a more recent invention; in very old photos they are rarely seen.

    1. Dearest Jim,
      Oh, the people that did put the concrete on did an excellent job! Indeed we have been lucky with that part. We too love to see the completion with the tiles on.
      Indeed, such a tiled border might be rare but in our case it will work out well. Maybe it adds a bit more of a Mediterranean touch to our home, placing some potting plants on the tiles will add some charm.
      Guess you are right about those foundation plantings.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  18. Oh that's a great job they did! The base work Pieter did and wooden beam must have made it easier for them to work on. It sure dried nicely. I can't wait to see the tiled job! These tiles looks so pretty and I'm sure it will look really lovely when they are all placed!

  22. Yes it's great to get these jobs out of the way, It's amazing you could do it in Winter!
    Drainage is so important in concrete work - Pieter would have ensured that so you don't have more issues!
    Once the tiles are on it will look as though it has been there forever.

  24. Dearest Mariette,
    The tiles will be an elegant finish to what has been a major project. I am sure that in spite of all the hassles the results are well worth the work involved.
    I'm looking forward to seeing potted plants on the tiles this summer. Your colors will provide a fine backdrop to any plants you choose. I think lots of greens would look especially wonderful.
    Meanwhile we have snow and more snow!
