Additon Step 2: Make a Flat Spot

Building
3

This is the second area I am flattening out for the addition. The other side was put up in a hurry, so I forgot to take pictures.

Obstacle 1 on this side is the tree stump.

Obstacle 2 is the gap alongside the house. I stacked rocks to form a wall.

Obstacle 3 was solid steps. I had to roll rocks to the spot so I could have the perfect steps.

And the biggest obstacle is getting rocks out of the way.

I did end up with plenty of rocks to build the walls.
