The old foundation of the little garage, the contractors dump truck
Odda's red kennel, and the tree stump by the front that looks
like it is next to the front tire of the truck.
Removing the tree stump. It was larger than I thought it would be.
Removing the old foundation and loading into the dump truck.
View from our back step.
The old tv tower coming down. The bird feeder was pulled out so we
can reinstall it. I now want it closer to the kitchen window!
Big equipment sure does the job! It beats doing it by hand.
Added many loads of sand for the base to prepare for new floor and foundation.
After the guys were done. Look at the ground level of Odda's kennel
compared to what the garage floor will be!
Later we cut down the lilac bush that is to the top rightof the picture. It encircled the main power pole, and we will be changing from overhead service to underground service coming from the pole where the lilac bush was; and the pole by the right edge of the picture will be coming out. It will be hard to get used to the fact that we won't be able to see the barns now from our kitchen window! That will take some getting used too!
The guys come back tomorrow to install the drain in the the ground. I don't know if they will be doing the trench for the power or not. Now things will go a little slower. We won't be home this weekend to work on the cement work, so that will start the weekend of May 1st.
This prepared area for the garage seems to make our house look really little! That's a thought. Maybe we should move into the garage! All one level, and you know, we're getting older! ha.
