A big weekend on the house project! We were joined this weekend by my sister and her husband (up from SF) for a birthday celebration, and to do some diggin! Dad and I borrowed the Komatsu from CoastCom to begin the long tedious process of prepping the homesite. One of the great things about Adair is the homeowner is responsible for a number of construction related activities, including site-prep work. Granted, most people probably HIRE someone to do this... but not me! Equipped with a new-ish excavator, and a rented tractor/mower... we tackled it head first!
Regardless of our inadequacies with the excavator, we managed to get quite a bit accomplished this weekend.
See those tree trunks?
Trunks dug out, making way for the new driveway
Our first attempt at road building... someone else will do this lol
Upper area cleared out... mostly blackberries! It's starting to feel landscapable
