Site Work

The building site started as a tangled mess of brush.

April 11, 2009
We began clearing brush using a rented 25-horsepower wood chipper and help from our nephew Nash. He’s not really taking a shower in the wood chips even though it looks that way. After a day of hard work we made what seemed like a lot of progress but there was still a LOT of brush left.

We got professional help from Absolute Tree Service. Their bobcat with a hydraulic grapple and a 200-horspower chipper made short work of trees and brush.

At the end of the day the building site was essentially clear of brush, and we ended up with about 100 cubic yards of wood chips for making paths.
