Road Building

Holder with Packer and Mower
I built two roads or Driveways the summer of 2019 and hauled gravel to another project.

For Mike and Olga, I cleared 150 mature birch with the tree harvester and grubbed and smoothed pad and constructed 700' of Driveway. WE will let the driveway set over the winter and evaluate how much dry material to bring in.



For Brandon, I cleared mostly black spruce with excavator, pushing trees down for speed and buried a lot of the trees and using excavated material out and along the new drive. Total distance is about 520 yards.

Wolverton Septic System

GreggandMark
With Gregg and Mark working grade in a deep hole, we installed Wolverton's 'graveless' (I mean gravel-less!) septic system using Infiltrator chambers and added some crates for additional leachfield space, over sand, water table suitable depth under, additional insulation and visqueen to keep the ground drier and less prone to freezing would have been better. Also more inspection pipes. Takeaway is get all the parts needed onsite, work out depths of tank and field, perhaps a lift station after the septic tank would have made the leach field at a higher and better elevation.

Moved a pile and spread 3/4" minus with the International loader. 
Under budget and over expectations!
Thank you James!

Can't win them all

In the big dump truck, we were fully overloaded and I couldn't easily navigate the steep drive and the brakes did not want to hold the load. The brake slack adjusters were recently inspected too!

In an attempt to pull out out of the drive and back onto the highway, still with the full load,  I sheared the driveline off at the rear differential. No recommendation there (Trapline!) 

Got a tow from a good neighbor Jim Huston!

McVitty Grub lot and dig mud pit

Grubbed McVitty's lot, removed several birch trees that were close to the exising cabin, grubbed the new building site with stump removal and haul-off. Dug a mud pit for the well driller that will be a starting hole for when the pitless is installed for the well.

I should hope so!
