I was able to get in to the site today and finally be able to walk around without sinking into the mud.

I piddled around and started setting grade stakes. That's turning out pretty good so far. The existing grade is pretty consistent so I don't have too many elevation changes.

The lowest spot is around the concrete steps going into the basement and I might have to pull some dirt out away from the house some, otherwise I'm going to have a hill in the sidewalk.

I'll post pics tomorrow. Things should be dried out enough to get rid of the rip-rap from the old steps out of the way and dig out a couple of spots that aren't low enough yet. Then I'll be able to finalize my grade in the front of the house.

The goal is now to have my base set and compacted by Wednsday afternoon. The next chance of rain is Thursday, and I would like to be able to lay pavers as soon as it stops.
