Dirt Work

19 Aug

After two years, we’re finally getting the dirt work done to make sure my garage doesn’t someday fall down the steep slope we left when it was built.

We had to get the llamas and bucks out of the area, so we extended the fence south of the garage all the way across the front pasture.

I put a big water tub out there along with a salt/mineral block.  The bucks can fit in the Quonset hut, but the poor llamas had no shelter.


With all the shade trees it’s not a big deal in a drought.

Last Friday (the 4th), Davis Tiling (and Dirt Work) came and starting moving the five loads of dirt that has been sitting there for almost two years.

He started on the south side of the building.

Then he started hauling dirt around to the back of the building.

He moved twelve loads of dirt and decided he needed to bring in more.

The plan was to come back on Monday and finish.  As I already have mentioned, though, we got rain.
