Breaking Ground

The snow finally gave us a break and temps warmed enough so that we could get some work done.  Dad called and asked us to come over early on Saturday so he could make some progress before my brother's basketball game Saturday afternoon.  Here he is busy at work.


Taken from where my front porch will be.


The driveway.  Dad was going to move it to the other side so we wouldn't have to turn the curve before pulling in, but it would have been too steep once he adjusted the grade for water to drain away from the house properly.


Ariel view pulled from Google maps.  I thought it would be helpful to visualize the property, and now you can understand why I'm "backwoods" babe :D.
