2. Kitchen triangle (stove/oven, fridge, sink) is jacked up--fridge needs to move over next to the mud room door.
3. No way to get to the third-floor staircase!
Tammy and Nathan helped clear as I ran he chainsaw today. Haley got out of it this weekend--she's at a friend's house.
We've now got a nice clearing, or at least a nice open area where the sun is shining in. I've chopped everything up pretty small within the clearing so now I can get the tractor in there and push stuff around, cut more firewood out of the big stuff, and continue cutting here and there along the newest driveway.
Someone tried to breach our main gate
Oct 6: Destroyed 7' box blade, ran 2+ tanks of gas through chainsaw toward clearing two sites: shop and cabin.
It turns out that the property we were about to close on is considered "Zone A - Unstudied" by FEMA. Wasn't sure what that would mean for us, so I started to research it. After discussions with the village zoning guy, and the village engineer we were advised not to make any assumptions and to hire an engineer to map out the present elevations of the land to see how they compared to their "guess" of what the floodplain elevation is. $850 later, the elevations are all way too close

Hello everyone- I'm a new member and hope to build within a few years. When I first came on the forum I thought I saw a spot that would list members' websites, but now can't find it for the life of me. Am I crazy or does this place exist?
