Clearing the land

The land came with an area cleared for a house and septic system, but we decided to move the location of the house, so we have had to do some additional land clearing. We have been working on this over the past few weeks.

Dean on chainsaw duty.

Look out for this chainsaw Ninja!

Me, I prefer a hatchet.

While our project foreman prefers to sleep on the job!

We spent all of last weekend in 90 degree temperatures with a rented chipper-shredder turning the slash from the trees we took down into piles of wood chips.

And here we all take a lunch break...

Later, Dean and Pumpy cooled off in the brook.

  1. I can't believe how much you have accomplished already Cathy-the land is beautiful, esp. the brook! Congrats on your new addition, Baby Backhoe! This will be a great way to follow your progress since we won't see you at the hospital much now-good luck :)
