Here are a few more pics of the progress they made today. Those scrapers are massive machines. They guesstimate 25 days to finish the excavation of the pond, building pad, and driveway. I'm just glad to see them getting started!

Long driveway so we can't be seen from the road.

Excavation should be done by the end of next week provided rain doesn't get in the way. It actually looks clear for a few days and they are pretty damn sure they're gonna get it done. The amount of dirt these guys have moved already is incredible. We hired Lange Excavation from Conway Springs. Nothing but compliments on the whole process. These guys don't mess around.

New pic. The pond is about halfway done. They have made a 20 ft. birm 100 ft. behind the dam so the neighbor can keep shooting his rifles. They are driving in circles with those scrapers. Scrape the pond, dump on the birm. I never would have thought they would have scraped this pond. I always thought they would use a big excavator.

It should all be done by next spring. All of the excavation is done and the pond is starting to fill up. The building guys are supposed to get started in November. Can't wait.

Thanks Mike. It really is rare land for this close to the city. It is completely overgrown this year after all the rain we had.

We are going out sometime this week to put up a trail cam to start tracking the deer. I'll get some pics of the finished excavation while I'm out there.
