More progress this week!
This was a bit disappointing. We had found a way to slope the landscaping from the front yard to the backyard, which was nice. However, the power company didn't want to have the meter set on a slope, so the rockwork had to be re-done to create a couple of distinct tiers.

Al in her boots.
It's a good thing she wore them. The key to the house was in a lock box at the front door, but there was a cesspool guarding the porch. She put her Hunter boots to good use.
