Dirt and power

Our 1st load of dirt
 So it has been quite a while since I posted an update to the blog on our new homestead and the progress that we made. We are now officially in our new house and have started a garden and just recently purchased some hens to add to our property.

We left off at removing a tree from our home site. Since then we have had to remove part of our fence to create a driveway. We needed 12 loads of dirt brought in to level our home site.

 Load after load they came. It took them a total of 4 days to bring all of our dirt.

 Meanwhile, Seco Energy came to begin installing our power poles. We needed 3 power poles and over 400 feet of electric wire ran to our property.

We now officially have dirt and power to our homestead. Next comes our house!
