About time for an update...

It's been pretty busy with one thing and another, but here we go!

Work began on the building site right after the long weekend, which coincided with the first week of our holidays.  It wasn't the most restful time (the workers showed up before 7:00 a.m. each morning, and we were serenaded by the machines every day), and our apologies go out to our neighbours, who were trying to enjoy their holidays too.
The calm before work began!

Ralph, the very talented backhoe/bulldozer operator.  He has an amazing touch with the machines!

After one day's work, it's quite a change in appearance.

Back at it the next day.  All the gravel had to be compacted as they went.

Iain and I are doing a bit of height marking.  The gravel had to come up to the top of the orange marks on the posts.

More gravel!

More compacting!

The end of one week.  Things are coming along!
More to follow...
