If I were a Giant


I’d worry about stubbing my toe!

(Yes that is Buddy, he’s just had a summer buzz cut)Rocks And K2s shorties 019 A fellow business owner who knew we were looking for large stones to use as steps (because he sells them and we’ve been there numerous times looking and planning) called and said he was clearing out the large slabs…. we could have them…Free!

He even loaded them on the trailer  for us & another pallet in the back of Mr. Fix-It’s truckRocks And K2s shorties 021Once  home, getting them unloaded called for a bit of creativity.  The forklift was brought to the house and the 1-2 ton pallets were unloaded in a matter of minutes

For the next few months they will be “Yard Art”  and play ground for the littles, until cooler weather..and the addition is completed

Some of the slabs are over 4 ft across and could be broken for 2 steps

When we move them to the back to place as steps up to the patio.

(and won’t that be a fun job!)

Other than about $10.00 in fuel we saved about $1,000.-1,500. in rock.  Which in my book is pretty darn good frugal deal!



  1. I love things for FREEEEEEEEEEEEE

  2. I love those type of rock! They will look amazing! Sweeeet deal!

  3. Paige, I about wet my pants when Larry told me!

  4. AP Gal, The best thing is they are from the same area as the other rock we have & will blend perfectly. Just have to wait for cooler weather to wrestle them in place

  5. Absolutely awesome!! I want to get some boulders for our yard.
