The excavator has arrived! Now we can finally get to work. There is only one problem, the “driveway” is not passable with an excavator. Before we can do anything, we have to fix the driveway so that the excavator will be able to get past the very steep ledge that is our driveway.
I am thrilled that this project has to get done first though, then maybe my car will go up the driveway. The last time we tried this, a piece of the undercarriage ended up bent and the gas tank brackets were broken. So I have to hike every day, all the way up and down the hill. Usually, this is just good excercise, but some days you just don’t have what it takes to walk. Soon, I can just drive.
The kids are thrilled wil all the loose dirt and rocks to play with.

On the plus side, this driveway project is a gold mine for foundation rocks.
On the home stretch…
A few years later, we decided we needed an excavator…
