No muzzled construction crews for a while. I spoke to my neighbor yesterday and I can use the excavator when I come back from hunting. I'll stump the trees first and then dig the foundation. Once I get that done and back filled, I'll probably wait until spring to build, all along hoping the price of materials comes down.
Better get digging before the ground freezes! I want to build a deck on my back porch, and just for a simple pedestal footing for the corners of the deck, I have to dig down a minimum of 48” to get below the frost line.
Well, I got it all stumped (sorry, no pictures, I was doing it after work and kept running out of daylight) and I ripped up the concrete pad I had for my trailer. First load getting ready to go. one or two more loads and I can start digging my foundation; well....as soon as I get my building permit.
Don't know how I have missed this thread. I think I have spoken about the loss of your dad before, but again, I am sorry for your loss. I know it has to be hard.
I understand wanting to be less indebted, but having all the work you do into a beautiful Bronco I would truly hate to see you sell it. It is only money, just borrow it. lol
Yeah, old age creeps up very fast. I have a retaining wall I built 15.5 years ago. The "blocks" weigh 80lbs each. A section of it fell this early fall near deer season. I still haven't put it back cause damn is it a lot harder than the first time.
Best of luck either way, and I promise to try not to be a stranger.
