I’m back at The House in the Woods and, after the long drive from the Little House in the Village, I decided to take it easy yesterday and ordered about 5 1/2 tons of gravel to shore up the Workshop loading dock entrance.

I’m hoping that this sloped build up will keep the bulk of the water running off to the side and down the hill, away from the Workshop. I’m sure I’ll have to make adjustments, but I expect this will be a significant improvement over the previous ‘grade’.
