French Drain

Pregnancy brain is real. So, I have a bunch of progress updates on Dax’s big boy room- starting with his floors being completed, but I forgot to take pictures of the floors. David has moved on to painting, so the floors are completely covered with paper which means I can’t take pictures. You’re just going to have to wait a little while longer. David does have until July 1 to complete the room, so hopefully that means I can take the pictures this weekend!

Moving onto another topic…we had some rain drainage issues with our last patio, and David has talked about getting a french drain put in for months. I was a little surprised that  he didn’t mention it to our contractor when we put in the new patio.

Of course, once the patio was completed, we had some major rain over here and we started to notice how much water was building up next to the patio.  David said “Well, we need a french drain put in”. No sh*t!! I reminded him that he mentioned that before, multiple times and was confused why he didn’t have one put in while we were building the patio.  His reasoning was that he wanted to see where they put the patio, the elevation of it, and if it made a difference with the water problem.  So, now that the patio is done, it apparently is time to get this french drain in, or else we will get this mini pond every time it rains.  No thanks!
