Home improvements or the Moat Around my Castle

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!

  1. You wouldn’t believe how hard it is to keep the kids out of the “moat” They have mud wrestling on the mind!

  2. Just think how nice it will all look when it’s all finished. Or, if the potential for anyone to storm your castle is there, you might want to consider hanging on to the moat. It can be very effective, I’ve heard.

  3. After my parents passed away, I had to deal with all the “stuff” – basically, getting their house on the market, etc. It needed foundation work. I was lucky that I didn’t have to live there while the work was being done, but it was still painful to hand over those checks!
