We are moved into our temporary housing. Our SIPs panels should be ready for deliver by mid May. The foundation people are working up bids. We met with the septic people again today and they are going to start on our septic plan.
I tilled a small garden for Briana today. She will have to post her plans for the garden this year. I probably won't do much gardening this year since I will be building a house. We are very excited to get started.
My next project is to till the area where the house will go and remove the topsoil and stockpile it. I will also need to move a few blueberry bushes so we will be able make the drive way go into the garage properly.
I really need to take some pictures of the tractor at work. Maybe even a video!

We moved stuff all weekend. We now have THREE storage units. One is for building materials and the other 2 for all our stuff. We still have quite a bit to move, but we sure put a good dent in it this weekend. I'm just ready to build the new house and get moved in!!!

The tractor was delivered to the farm today! I was working, so Briana met the tractor delivery dude there. I got back in town after dark and of course stopped by to check it out. In the dark with my lights shining, it is all I imagined. Can't wait to get out there and till and clear a path to the creek, etc, etc, etc!!! I'll go out and take some pictures tomorrow.

Our tractor will arrive tomorrow! Today I purchased a 26hp tractor, 4x4, front end loader, brush mower and tiller. Ready to start preparing the land for whatever farming plans we have in the future. I'll post pictures this weekend. We close on our city house next Friday, so we are scrambling to move all our stuff to storage. We will start building after closing. It's amazing how much stuff accumulates in a house after living there for 9 years.
