Two Tons of Decomposed Granite for Garden Castle Shed

It's only 7 p.m. and we are both beat, especially Jan. He worked so hard today making do without a wheelbarrow.

When I returned at 10:30 a.m. from an office meeting he had already moved some of the decomposed granite, DC as it is called.

We don't own a wheelbarrow so he used plastic garbage cans and a 5 gallon bucket on our flatbed dolly. Here he is shoveling.


Yesterday afternoon after ordering the DC we stopped at Harbor Freight for a tamper to compact the DC layers. It looks mighty small, it's an 8x8 inch square.

By mid afternoon the area was filled and leveled for our garden castle shed. I did help! I shoveled, tamped and leveled but sure don't have the stamina Jan does.

Just to keep our eyes on the project, the model we made a couple of weeks ago has gone through different planning stages. The plan now is the turrets to be 4 feet in diameter and the center part of the shed will be larger, an 8 foot wide and 5 foot deep shed.  

Here is a simple drawing Jan did. Nothing is set, could be a few changes as we go along with the building project for our garden castle shed.
