Michele Mobbs - Australia Jungle Bath House Terraced Cobblestone Path Project Made Using Olde World Stone Castle Stone Paver Moulds
Hello again John.
I bought the 6 x 4 cobblestone molds to pave the area in front of the house, which I still intend to do. However, last year I decided that I REALLY need a bath to soothe my aching muscles. (Only a shower in the house).
There is a levelled area to the west of the house, just right for a bath house, but I needed to firstly terrace the slope and put in a path. As I live in the tropical north of Australia, an outdoor bath is perfect. Paving this area has proved to be the perfect way to practice my paving skills on a small area. It also has given me the chance to use the first few batches of less than perfect pavers!
I took these pics only yesterday and today and as you can see, the job is only just started. Prior to paving, I had to level stepping areas, cut sleepers with my chainsaw as the front of step retainer, cut metal reinforcing bar to hold the wood in place and then edge with rocks. I have had to carry the levelling fill, bedding sand and cobblestones down to this area in buckets!
I made a vibrator, based on the suggestion on your website. I used a piece of rubber flooring, the type sold for people to stand on instead of concrete. Thanks so much to your contributor for this.
Well, I hope people like my project.
Regards from Oz.
