Day 1 is over...

ok, so here it is so far...
it is so big!
I am going to need the wheel chair to get to the other end and back...
we got a tenth of an inch of rain last night...
not enough to help anything...
and it took them forever to get the holes dug...
they went down 4 feet and never found anything damp...
they found tree roots, a rock and the old underground telephone line...
everything now is run overhead...
the poles are leveled and set in concrete...
80 pounds per hole...
I would think they would be done by the end of the week...
so guess where I will be this weekend...
yep, out there telling my guys where to put things!

I have Deck envy just looking at that picture. You'll really enjoy that one. Grab a whip and chair and put the guys to work.
