Dirt work day 1

Here's what they did in the first day, which was only from 11am-5pm. One operator scraped all the organic layer and stumps and moved them. Instead of burying them in a hole, they used it to build up a flatter area below the house, which will be good for raspberry bushes, a garden, a yard, whatever. They squeezed through all the trees and didn't even knock any down.
Then they roughed in the first leg of the driveway, which you see here from the top. It looks very nice and not too steep.

Marcy and I also finished stacking one pile of firewood so we should have some nice dry wood for the first winter.
