Before anything else could be done, I had to Tear Down 2 sheds. One was
a large 20' X 10' shop and the other a 10'X10' shed. In addition was the loss of
the huge covered carport attached to them both. With this loss Room and
Space to put things and keep things dry becomes a huge challenge for the
remainder of the project. So, I had to find room to stash and rat
hole all my tools, boxes, equipment, here and there throughout the trailer.
Then I hired some help and proceeded to demolish the shops and the
carports. Man, that was more work to tear it down than build it ! I
tried to save some of the material, but that was nearly impossible. Still,
I was able to save lots of plywood and long 1"X4" roof boards which I used later
and saved myself a few $$$'s. Again, Cleanup took quit a lot of hours and
several runs to the dump.

experience to work.
|We had allot to dig in a short amount of time
| I was
fortunate Josh could make the 600 mile round trip to come help.
|The backhoe was Huge and the
area Josh had to maneuver in was very limited
|Josh let me drive just long enough for me to realize how long
it would have taken me to learn how to drive this thing.
|I was pretty amazed that
Josh was able to get some of the
huge stumps out with the backhoe.
|Josh made the machine look well orchestrated with fluid
movement of the controls.

carefully hand cut any large tree roots. We wrapped the ends with
