Day 2 on the Shed/Garage

The dirt man came out pretty early this morning. Thankfully, Scot took the camera and was able to document for me today.

Scot used Larry's tractor again to help spread it all out.

Starting to build the trenches for the forms.

I know Scot is so thankful to have little machines like this compactor - can you imagine doing it the old fashion way??!

B is loving being out there with his daddy. What a good helper he has been!

E has also enjoyed getting in on the action! She loves to be daddy's helper as much as B does.

Here is how it looked after the compacting work was complete.

Now we are ready for another load of dirt and will have to do it all over again tomorrow!

Breaking Ground

We broke ground on the shed today!

We used the tarp to see a visual for the shed placement.

We drove stakes in the ground at the corners.

Then, Scot borrowed Larry's tractor to scape down the area for the shed.

Scot getting rid of the clumps of roots..there is still a little more to do in the morning before the dirt arrives!

Overall, a very good productive first day of building!

Sad News

We bought a few extra trees to plant around our land. We had plans to plant them this weekend. I guess now they will beautifully decorate someone else's land seeing as someone helped themselves to our trees!!

Thankfully, we only paid $5.00 for them!
