A Place For Everything

My house project "ban" has been lifted and it feels amazing! I shared our dining room progress {HERE} and we've knocked out another project as well. It must be something about the cooler weather giving us more energy to tackle things.

After we moved our garbage service changed. The company provided the can and it's a lot larger than our old ones. We didn't really have a great place to put it and it didn't fit between the two garage doors. I'm very OCD and it really needed its own spot. 

My husband decided to make a place. 

He measured the can and dug out a space beside our driveway. Then he built a form for the concrete, knocked in rebar, and strung wire throughout to give more stability.

When he poured the concrete, he shaped it to allow water to flow away from the house. When the drain pipe from the gutter flows, it still has a direct path leading away from the house. You can't really see the difference in the pictures, but it is there.

And now we have a place for the new garbage can. And my OCD heart is happy.... I really have a great husband who understands my need to have things in order!
