A Big Pile - O - Rock,
That's a lot of rock too--80,000 lbs.
My husband was working on leveling out a place for the tractor
and reworking the driveway, removing low spots
that collect water or that allow it to cascade across
places that it wasn't planned to go.
The cats were pretty interested.
We had to park the vehicles in unusual places
to free the entire area.
My husband must think we were making a Jeep commercial!
It's a good thing he has a tractor
otherwise he'd be shoveling a lot!
Here he dug a trench out by the chicken coop
leveled it out and lined it with some
blocks we had stored out back.
He leveled and back filled it.
He brought the blocks up using his
four wheeler and little trailer.
Finally he had the base for his future shed.
For now it will be the open parking place for the tractor.
He will also be rocking the dirt driveway
that services the side yard.
Then he will rework the side garden
adding more planting space by
changing the bed layout.
He used the tractor to haul up some large stones
that he put aside back when we were building the house.
He used these to brace up the front wall.
It will eventually have some sort of shelter on it.
We might start out with something temporary
until he can build a machine shed.
The nice thing is that whatever he builds will have
space for the cats to get out of the weather.
