  • Herb has been working
  • Finally starting work on my Island cottage. Herb 9N has scraped of the layer of black dirt, to reveal the gravel / sand type stuff below. Then I needed a drainage ditch to the street. I set the blade at a sharp angle to cut the dirt. A plow or a sub soiler would probably work better, but I do not have either.

    The front part of my lot has rock sloping from 1 to 2 feet down. So I exposed some rock. Room for 2 cars to park.
    Just wrote my exam to qualify for building. Hoping I pass.

  • Good luck with your project. It can be frustrating at times but seeing the end result should result in quite a bit of satisfaction.

    I was absolutely tickled to get the septic done. It seems stupid, but that was a big step forward. We should be pouring concrete in the basement within the week. Then siding.
