Long Day

So I didn't get all my grade finished today only because I decided to set the steps this morning. I did get the finished grade on the east section (with the center island) up to the steps. That was the worst as I had to dump the mini into the wheel-barrow to get the rock out to that section. Unfortunately the tracks were tearing up my corners in my run, so I decided just to use the barrow.

All in all it went great, got a lot done and the rest of the grade should be done by noon tomorrow. After that I might take the afternoon to work on a cleanup.

The steps I couldn't be happier about. No shimming and I was within 1/16 of an inch below the molding of the door. As soon as I'm done with the project I plan on giving them a good power wash.

That Vermeer is such a useful engine.
