Pouring steps

One of the last big jobs … The team from Gilsa Construction is back on site to pour concrete into the forms they built for the concrete walk to the front of the house from the street, along the front and side of the house to the kitchen door, and to the kitchen door from the driveway.

The mixer is brand spanking new. Not a speck of wear and tear to be seen on that bright white paint job. Tonka and Hot Wheels are drooling.
