The photos took me awhile. Wanted to make sure I wasn't to close but not to far away.

used the mini and a t190. I pulled the wall over and then while he was down cleaning up the mess I cut the top shelf and then cut the rest after my guy finished.

Were doing another wall on the other side of that mound so between the two we stayed moving pretty good. Only problem is now we have a mountain in the middle to get rid of.
