Let the games begin!

Well now the object of the game is to get this home moved to the next county over!! After the nice little family that are living there move out anyway!! This was a drive by shot and I was also the driver! Pretty good huh?
Finally the machine has a newly repaired engine as of this morning and it is on it's way to my land to start clearing it!! YES!!!
The first little piece of underbrush is moved. It doesn't take much to make me happy.
giggle giggle.....

This boy thinks he's hot stuff with his big ole toys. Yep, I am sure his life would be so much easier if he just accidentaly pushed me into a brush pile ;o)
Maybe he is hot stuff. I am surely liking this place more and more. The driveway will cut around toward to the left and the home will be secluded by a lot of big trees, ya know a "private retreat" is what we are after.

It was 11 Am before we got the dozer to the land and we left at 6 PM with a pile of land cleared and the driveway roughed in. We will be back on Saturday to try and finish so we can move the mobile home in when it is ready. I am sooooo excited. It is really looking great. Pictures really don't capture the lay of the land and the beauty but it is really looking good.

Ok Enough of the boring construction shots right?

I'm soooo excited for you! We had an addition built onto our home in 2000. I recall the first day when the heavy equipment and lumber showed up. It was almost better than Christmas!

Oh Yes Cindy we added a master bedroom on a couple years ago. We were (excuse me, he was) doing all the work and I couldn't let myself get too excited cuase I knew it was going to take forever. It did take forever but boy was it worth it.

I hope our little weekend retreat doesn't turn into too much work for a long period of time so that we can truely enjoy going down on weekends soon. Things are really happening fast, I guess it is meant to be!!

You girls will all have to come to Va and stay for a while with me!!
