    Start hauling dirt today to make way for a new shop. We had been wanting to level up the backyard for several years. Finally purchased the field land adjacent to our property so started today.

    More details to come.

    So jealous. Must be awesome to be able to design your own space, etc. Can't wait to see it come together.

    Well, design will be dictated by how the land lays. We are having to cut it down 10 feet easy to level off the spot.

    How much fill is going to be needed? Which you were closer, I about to have one of my ponds that is silted up, cleaned out. New shop will be nice.

    Looks like we are planning to bring in 30 loads. The backyard isn’t where the shop is going just a project that I’ve wanted to do. Then we will strip and level where the shop is going and that dirt will be moved to the backyard.

    Don't forget a good drainage plan.

    Yes sir. Planning a French drain system around the garage. Gotta wait for the pad to be poured before I start that. They will start a slope for me but the tile and drain will mostly be hand dug afterwards.

    Here’s the start. This gives you an idea of how the grade is. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Last pic is where all this dirt will be.

    How about a daylight basement for storage and the top floor could be the shop? Or have the driveway come around to the basement and use it as additional car parking.

    Thought about the basement idea. Almost doubles my initial estimate.

    No wonder you Appalachian hill-billies have such a crooked and slanted reputation: just look at the land you own! *G*
    Did you find any buried treasure or dead bodies yet?
    Are you the one actually driving the big toys and pushing the dirt around? Gawd, that would be an awful lot of fun!
