Fully Flattened


The first step for the addition is to flatten the area, as I have mentioned before. However, the steps are overlapping here for us a lot. There are a few steps that are close to done as well, but the flattening is all done.

There were stumps and Rocks all along the way. Everything dug by hand. Only some help from the chainsaw on the stumps.

The final stump was the worst. We had to chunk it up with a chainsaw and leave pieces. This may cause problems in a few years when it rots.

Either way, it’s flat. Now to move more rocks to finish the foundation.

After we did all this work by hand, we realized that it would take us 20 years to just build a path across the property.

We bought a mini excavator.
