    That photo of the load of "junk hardwood logs" is pretty impressive. It's really quite a load.

    On the attractive load of gravel that was spread--did you do this with a tractor or did a bulldozer do it? My concern would be to wonder if the gravel was compacted sufficiently.

    Pete, that's a breathtaking view down that valley in your last shot. There'll always be plenty of pretty scenery for your Mom to look at. I'm enjoying your thread and chanting, "Go! Go! Go!"

    Thanks! Yes, the views are amazing. That crappy cell phone pic at dusk doesn't even do it justice. Here's a better one.

    They used a rubber tracked skid steer to spread it. I'll check that they plan to plate compact it or something before pouring the slab.

    Definitely make sure they compact the crap out of it before pouring any concrete and setting walls.

    I don't think gravel needs to be compacted all that much but I do think it needs to be compacted at least some. Maybe research a bit before Momday. Ask Eddie Walker on this site if you can--he knows his stuff.
