Part 2 Block Clearance

Unfortunately, it was boggy bit that prematurely ended the day- too soft to bring in the stone, and it will also add another $600 to the bill as I will undoubtedly need to have a concrete pump truck 😦

I can see a bit of the future, and it involves restorative gardening works….and I am no gardener.

Next stage is waiting a few days for the ground to dry out more, then the stones are bought in and footings drilled.

  1. I hope that nice, rich-looking black soil is going to a good home. It at least looks a hell of a lot better than the pale orange rock-clay that comprises my yard here in Canberra!
    Great to see the progress, though, Stu: there’s nothing like action to make you feel good.

  2. Hello from Atlanta GA USA. We have red clay soil so I am just watching in amazement at your black loam.

    Yes, you are going to have a large project.

    Nice time lapse, those are fun.

    Enjoy your blog.

    • Hi Bartee,

      Yes, and it is hard to part with – very rich, fertile soil.

      This time lapse (and the next to come) are trials for the main event – the week-long shed assembly. Iron out any bugs now, get the settings spot on, and learn the limitations of the technology.

      I ran the camera of mains for the whole shoot, so that part was fine. The 10 second delay was ok, but might bring it back to 5, or 2 for smoother flow. The MicroSD card I have can store around 8000 images, so not too shabby, and it opens up the options.

      Despite the progress being interesting, I can’t wait for it all to just be done and dusted.
