Remember that cheesy eighties song by Diana Ross? I bet it hasn’t come to your mind in many years, but after seeing the title of my blog post you’ll probably be replaying the song and the equally cheesy video in your head. All of that to say that never in my wildest dreams did I think our home renovation would require the the kind of muscle this bad boy provides.
You might be wondering why we needed this kind of heavy duty machinery. Well before we can concentrate on the pretty, we need to attend to the basics and our house needed a new sewer lateral. I know, not sexy. But having unfortunately experienced a sewer lateral that was not up to par in our last home, we figured that it was best to get it done right up front than live with the consequences… I wont get into details, but I’m sure you can imagine.
As they say, you live and learn, and we learned a lot from our last home.
Not sure if this is a backhoe or a bulldozer, my older son would be able to set me straight in two seconds. But needless to say we needed it to dig a trench and using the right equipment makes a difference. Perhaps renting this kind of equipment seems less budget friendly, but ultimately it saves time. And time is money.
Our new sewer lateral is in and passed with flying colors. Yippee! One step closer to making the house a home.
