Thanks.

On Friday, if you look at the first AFTER picture. All the dirt in front of the boat house and by the retaining wall is coming out and we are putting down gravel there.

Saturday, more brick comes to add to the wall.

My dad likes doing projects. He is now talking about redoing our permanent dock (over 100 ft.) and residing and redoing the roof of the boat house into a deck.

Funny I was just looking back at this and its crazy how much better it looks. We added a smaller wall on the other side as that started to cave into the boathouse. We also had some of it dug out to put gravel in for a better grade down. Boat house was re-roofed and painted to match the house. I'll have to post more pics.
