DIY Paver Walkway Project Completed!

 

I'm so thrilled to share some photos of our completed paver walkway project.  This has been a LONG time coming.  My sweet husband did all the work himself between his work schedule and while the weather permitted.  The month of June was a bust. We had so much rain!  I patiently looked at my pallets of pavers sitting by the walkway for over a month before he could get to the project.  Well, it was totally worth the wait!






 




Here is a photo of what it looked like before.  I shudder to think about it...  We had just replaced all the rotted porch decking and supports. This was before we painted and brought out some of the trim details on the house.  The poor old house looked so sad :-( 


But it's happy now!
 
  
I'll be posting the information on how my husband built these walkways in another post.  It is back breaking work but it can be done and it saves a TON of money!  I'm so thankful that my husband could do this project.  It really changes the entire curb appeal of the house.

That’s a fine job, despite the intermittent labor. Kudos to your tag team! :D How long did it take for you to finally finish this? And how long exactly is this stretch? Toby@Tittle Brothers Construction
