Early last year Lady Lightman and myself purchased a wooded lot in the town we currently reside. The original plan was to simply cut in a small driveway, parking area, a few paths through the woods and set up a picnic area. Once we started this project, we realized that we enjoyed just being on this property which made it hard to leave each time.
Right around this same time we completed the last project at our current home. With the feeling that we were “done” with the projects at the current home, we started making plans for the new property. It wasn’t long before we were looking at home plan layouts and deciding to have a house built.
The first step was clearing the home-site. We wanted to keep all the trees, except the ones where the house and driveway would go. Unfortunately the trees were all in really bad condition. Except for a few gems along the edges, the majority had to be taken down. This video shows that process. Please comment on YouTube. Like and subscribe if you want to see more.
