Turning Point


Lewis the Excavator called yesterday morning and said he could be at the site in a half hour to finish the job. In three hours he and his machine had pulled all the stumps and created a level building site and parking area. We have one towering pile of brush and stumps ready for burning. We can call the well driller now; he should be able to drive right in once the newly excavated ground freezes up again. While Lewis was digging, I spent a couple hours splitting next winter's firewood.
When just a week or so ago it seemed like things were a little bogged down, yesterday's work, just three short hours, marked a turning point in the process. Soon I'll start building the forms for the foundation...

Michael. You have drama AND interesting information. Maybe you should canvas WGBH and have their Irish TOH host come visit your project? It's worth a try especially since the technologies and building style you are employing are atypical and environmentally friendly. You are Irish. Kevin is Irish. You both went to HC...I smell a TV spot for you and Mich. DO IT!
