TAPPED OUT

Last night we cleaned our bathroom floors with a deck cleaner/brightener. Then we laid one coat of Clear-Seal clear epoxy on them both. This morning we woke up and put on another coat. By tomorrow they should be ready to walk on!photo 3photo 4

We started by dumping in sand, working it under the pipes, and spraying it down with water to compact it and work it further under the pipes. Then we put some sand on top of the pipes and sprayed that down as well. The sand will prevent any rocks from getting close to the pipe and potentially putting a hole in it. Once all the sand was in place, we back-filled the dirt into the trench.

Exhausted. Goodnight.
