Catching up: Clearing the Building Site With Ed


We started clearing the building site January of 2005 with the help of Ed M. We spent a few days running a mini excavator (Ed) and our 1941 Farmall (Joel). Ed is 80+ years old and has lived in the area for years (and has all of the local connections). Over the past year or so Ed has become a good family friend and an invaluable source of information. No matter what the tool is, he has it.


The property is covered in ~80 year old southern yellow pines and oaks. With this in mind we settled on building the first building (the coach house) as a timber frame. We are trying to obtain as much of the materials from the land as possible. This of course required the purchase of more tools (more on that later).
