Finally! After four years….
….our interlock is sealed!
It has been a project on our to do list for a looooong time, but it never got done. Part of it was fear — “What if we do it wrong? What if we wreck the patio?”
It was also very daunting. We have a large patio in the back — a lot of surface area needed to be covered.
But, after so many years of neglecting this must-do job, we finally did it. We couldn’t have had a better weekend for it — sunshine, still air and comfortable temperatures.
Doing one coat of sealer took about three hours.
The fumes? Noxious! Even outdoors.
I swear, I was high. My fine motor skills were compromised and my head was pounding!
Four cans of sealer later, the first coat was done. We still have a second coat to go, which will bring the colours of the interlock out even more.
The backyard has come a long way since we bought the house. One day I’ll pull together a “before, during and progress” post. It’s been a wild ride!
Completing this final step is kinda a big deal!
