Today, we started construction on an additional bay to a standing barn on the George property. Wyatt George is the recently retired pastor at Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Carbondale. In his retirement years, he plans on harvesting trees on his property, milling them, and drying them in this new bay on his barn that we are building for him.
The soil was a little wet from recent rains, but we were able to start cutting down the hill to the west of the barn and start leveling the ground for construction.
We own our own John Deere Backhoe and Ford 350 dump truck and laser level, so we have the equipment to perform work like this ourselves. Any of one of us has the skills to operate the hoe. Darek was the chosen one today!
