Currently I house my tractor in a large machine shed. However, that should all change this fall when it gets to move into a new home. This is the site before anything started.

We have a 400' driveway and I took the top 6" of dirt off for use in the yard. Here is the tractor moving the dirt.

My brother and I put down geofabric so the rock wouldn't sink into the mud.

The site is on a hill and doesn't allow for easy access by cement trucks. As a result they pumped the walls.
