We've had a busy Fall trying to get things done so we can move forward with our land plans. Building is like a puzzle. You have to have certain pieces in the right order/place, before you can proceed. We finalized our house plans, to work on these things...
|trees had to be removed|
|the house site was cleared|
|our son & Brad plotted the house|
I supervised ;)
|after a lot of measuring,|
house stake markers are in place
The general building site was also officially surveyed.
|soil had to be perk tested|
|our son smoothed out the building site,|
now only key stakes remain

before it was put in
|the clouds are magnificent|
our trucks are parked at the house site
Last weekend we rented equipment so the three of us could clean the strip opposite our house site. They clear cut trees before we bought the land, it was a mess. It is an ideal area to run the necessary electrical, and have the box out of view. Brad was in a mini excavator, our son & I each ran a bobcat. I am slowly getting better at running them. At some point we switched, the grappler bucket is harder to coordinate then it looks.

|I was happy to have a door between me|
and the loads that were dropped into my bucket
We are going to have fun with this huge bonfire pile! Everyone who see's it wants to be invited lol. There is so much more work that needs to be done, but for now we are caught up and moving ahead as planned!!
