While we're staying close to Matt & Suzanne's new house, we decided to help them with a few projects.
John & Matt put in a new sprinkler system for the backyard. The front yard came with landscaping & sprinklers, but not the back. Matt took a few days off of work and rented a trencher to dig the lines for the pipes. Of course he has the Huber luck, so the first trencher didn't work correctly and we had to take it back and trade it for one that worked. That put us a day behind, but we're the patience type. That left it half finished on Super Bowl Sunday. Needless to say, nothing got done on that day except that Matt & John were glued to Matt's new TV watching the entire game and evaluating each commerical. Did I mention that it rained hard that day.
But even with the cold and the flood, Matt and John finished the project the following weekend. Now, onto the concrete patio. John thinks he has convinced Matt to hire out that project!
Linda didn't help much with the sprinklers because she was inside painting the family room. Matt & Suzanne did the hardest part of the job, picking out the color. John & Linda took 2 years to decide on a color for their family room.
