Tractor Pulling Down Last Walls
This evening we pulled down the last walls of the hay shed where we’ll be building our big project of 2009. The little corner by the farm house kitchen remains because the electric utility mast comes down there. Will saws-alled off the walls next to the electric, keeping a goodly distance away for safety. I hooked up the logging chains to the walls and Will got the pleasure of ripping the remaining walls off the foundation using the tractor. A boy and his toys. Maximum destruction for reconstruction!
Tomorrow we’ll do more denailing and cleanup of the foundation site so we can soon pour the sub-slab. A little more progress every day.
We also got most of the 300′ of underground electric trench completed. It is now dug, de-rooted (mostly), de-stoned, raked smooth and straight. There are a few stubborn stumps that the tractor can not pull. Chain-saws don’t like dirt but with perseverance, and several re-sharpening of the old chains, even big roots give way.
