Hey Chris, you gotta love horsey people. This is shaping up very much like my friends job last summer. Every couple of days they come up with some new for you to do. He went form one stone retaining wall to 3 and a pond with irrigation/waters

So I had to find a place for all this rock I've been digging up. build some walls!

So I added another layer to my first wall.



Built a wall around this building.






Ran some more water line and did some testing, everything passed with a A+

I'd say for the wire, water and irrigation pipe it's just about a mile all together. I've gotton good at trenching. thats a good thing cause we have several more jobs to do drain line work on after this one.

A mile all together!? Ba, thats nothing! Hows 37 miles of just electric in Dads best year, anything from primary to services to the house, I couldnt imagine how many miles Dad and his crews installed all together(drainage, and utilities total) in that year.

What were you doing with the dozer?

and why are you bring dirt in?

btw, I think you should bring in an old bucket or two, the daewoo and say your setting up shop!
