Last week we had workers here to do all sorts of foundation and waterproofing work on my house. They are certainly not done but they have given me one unexpected, but really cool feature…I now have a moat around my house. Although we had a lot of rain earlier in the summer, we have been pretty dry lately. We were dry until last night that is. Some pretty good storms blew through and dumped a bunch of rain pretty quickly. The drainage ditches the workers are building are basically solid clay still at this point and do not drain…at all. So all around my house, I have a water filled moat! I love home improvement!
