Welcome back and thanks for checking back in. So after 3 days of clearing the land by hand and with the use of the ATV we decided to rent a bobcat. It made a few weeks work of manual labor just 3 days of easier labor.
We had to clear about 2 acres to get the land perk tested. After clearing that we staked out the house, proposed septic location, and proposed well location. I drew up the maps and we are turning in all the applications today. Then Sarah’s dad will meet with the environmental services department in about 2 weeks because we will be back in Alabama building a pool.
Now operating any kind of heavy equipment is dangerous work. If you don’t know what you’re doing you might consider hiring someone else to do it.
I’ve operated heavy equipment for many years and am a certified operator but it’s still tricky and dangerous on a mountain side…just ask Sarah because she was a nervous wreck watching some of the things I had to do. My father in law stayed the entire time in case something went wrong.
This work has whooped my butt but we have been blessed to be invited to use a friend’s hot tub anytime we want to relax and soak sore muscles.
Thanks for watching our progress. We’d love to hear from you as well go.
