Construction Zone

Sometimes I feel a little claustrophobic living in a rental. It is what it is…but as I get older and look around there are a lot of changes I want to make.

When we moved in there was this awkward dirt pit on our back porch. I guess the people before us had an in-ground hot tub…unfortunately it cracked and when we moved in the hole was only filled in with dirt. At first I thought it would be awesome to put a garden there. Yeah. That didn’t work out. I didn’t realize how much the screen would effect the sunlight coming in…but that’s a different story.

I was tired of looking at this dirt pit…and took to Pinterest.

I found this…and knew it was perfect for my dirt hole.

When I told my husband that I wanted to use the dirt hole as a “construction area” he actually took the ball and went with it. Which is wonderful because this Florida heat is something terrible right now.

Hucklebaby even got in on the action. We didn’t tell him what was happening and the whole time he was not happy that the bricks were not symmetrical. He is gonna be the kid where everything will have to line up.

Billiam was so proud of himself for painting lines on the road. I was more impressed we already had a can of yellow paint. (Can we talk about these socks for a minute… I just don’t get it. He wears his socks like this all the time at home and it drives me crazy!!!!!)

Hucklebaby started playing before it was even finished. He ran inside and started grabbing a bunch of cars and construction toys.

I love the way it turned out and it’s weird that the pictures do it absolutely no justice. It looks much cooler in person.

Now I need to work on storage for his outdoor cars and toys… To the Pinterest board.
