    I am still working on the resizing picture does not look right but hey I am expanding my limited computer abilities. The picture with the cabin was a job where the material from behind the cabin had to be removed and laid out in the front which was a sheer drop. Nothing technical, I wish I would have taken pictures of it when I was done. It was pretty cool. The bank was stepped down. Moved a lot of dirt.


    The other was a big foundation we dug last year. The project is still on going. I will get some pictures of it. This year we dug for the gym, and the garage (2700 square feet), this Spring will be the Pool house. I have no idea how big that will be.

    That hill was stepped back. This Spring when the snow is gone we have some more work to do and I will take more pictures. I have no idea how many Ks of dirt I moved but it was a lot. The trees you see on the hill were removed and the step process completed.

    Here is the road leading up to the cabin and one of a big red tractor at one of the farms in the area.

    I have posted these before. One is on the ski hill in Montana and the other is of my 9020B, which is getting a face lift this Winter. The rather bare picture was a before photo of a house site on the ski hill from two years ago. There was 25' of fall in the foot print of the house. There was 15' of fall in the house with the equipment on it. Gives you a whole new appreciate to being able to dig a foundation on flat ground.
