After being put on cold hold, our arena build has started back up. To date we've hauled 27 dump truck loads of fines, 3 gravel loads and counting.
That is a lot of coming and going, and dumping.
Brad built a ramp out of the gravel in the back of the arena, so the dump truck can drive right inside and put the loads in different areas. He has spent many many (many) hours in a bobcat getting the loads moved to exactly where they need to be, and leveled.
I am sure the neighbors that live closest to the barn will be happy when we are done with hauling. A truck dumping (actually when it's done) makes a loud bang. I assume every one has seen a dump truck, dump. I've been slacking at taking action photos of the build in-progress.
The three dogs and I checked out the start of the backfilling:
a couple loads of fill
The small dirt ramp on the long side is where a service door will go (work in progress).

Um, Remi...pretty sure you are not suppose to be down there

The actual building starts going up mid March. I can't wait to see the trusses flying!!
