I had another 12 loads delivered today. It’s raining so I’ll have to wait for it to dry out before I can level it.

It stopped raining about 7 pm so I jumped on the tractor and worked till dark. I was able to rough level 3 of the 12 loads.

Not many people know this but Mike is my cousin. Not. We do have the same last name and we look similar.

I had another three loads delivered today. So far I’ve had 85 loads delivered. I still have five loads to level.

There were two large rocks in the dirty quarry and I placed them on the front corners near the building. There will be two 10x10’ garage doors and the smaller center rock will go between them.

Those rocks are going to give the front of your building a nice look. Interesting to see them in place without the building but it sure defines the future look nicely.

I’ve been digging the big rocks out of the clay and placing them in different areas. Here one marks the 50 yard line from my upper berm.

A lot of the rocks roll away from the edge. I’ll be able to gather them later.

The level platform is really getting big. I live on a hill and level ground is worth it’s weight in gold.

My neighbor pulled two big rocks from the edge of my platform last night. My little Branson wouldn’t budge them.

The Ford’s front tires are bigger than the Brandon’s rear tires.

I’m getting the final dozen loads of the road building gravel delivered this afternoon. I’ll spread it and then on Thursday/Friday get a couple loads of 1” clean gravel to put directly in front of the vehicle doors. That way I don’t track dirt into the garage.

Speaking of the garage it will be delivered and installed next Monday.

Next comes the electrical and shelving. Although just seeing it up on the hill will be a big milestone.
