Progress! Clearing land for the homestead

Here’s another video peek into the process of clearing the land to build the homestead. In this clip, our guy with the big yellow machine had been hard at work for 2 days. What he could not know, nor did we, is that it would take another three weeks to finish the job. (Originally, we all thought it would be four days. tops.)

Crew members came and went. Equipment broke down. It rained a lot. There were Sabbaths to observe and other clients to meet. Fortunately, we were not really in a rush, but we did feel bad for our contractor. July and August are hot months to be struggling with two acres of trees. Tim joined the crew for much of the work and pulled his weight.

It’s a process – and we are underway.
