Window Well Done!

Oh, window wells. How much more exciting can a project get? This is another “it has to get done but so don’t want to do” project. Surprisingly, Misha was quiet excited about getting started on it. The advantage of a window well is that we can maintain the soil grade slope away from the house. This is very important to keep the water draining away from the house and maintaining a dry basement. The well would also prevent rot around the window as we still have wood frames around our basement windows. It took us about couple hours to finish off the project and now the front of the house is ready for some native woodland landscaping. Misha did a great job on this one! Posted by Mia
