My dad stopped by this week. He’s not a sit and visit sort, so he asked if there was a project we could work on. I had to admit I picked up a rain barrel last fall from the city and never hooked the darn thing up. So we measured and schemed and found a place for it on the unused sidewalk that leads to my kitchen door.
We ended up making a base with $0.99 pavers and a single patio block for a top. It was sturdy enough as is, but we decided to silicone the pavers together just to be extra sure, because we’re cautious like that (now you know where I get it from). The only other thing we needed was to saw off the gutter and buy 2 L bends to feed into the barrel.
I don’t know why I put off such a quick and cheap project so long. It rained on Wednesday, so it’s already filled to overflowing.
