    With 4 guys, a mahindra tractor with forks, bobcat s175 with forks, and 10" ford chipper we cleared 22 trees and moved a 12 x 16 shed. Lot is completely cleared and ready for some digging. The building (barn) is 28 x 36 3 bay with full second floor. The ceiling height on the ground floor is 13' to accept an automotive 2 post lift. The second floor has 5' knee walls to a 10 pitch roof. 42" wide indoor stair case going to second floor. Foundation to be poured and floor poured next week. Pictures to come.
