Today we used the Kubota KX-080 Excavator and MX 5400 Economy Utility Tractor to finally get the building pad on grade. Also made more room at the renewable energy processing center fire more firewood storage and other uses.

Mike A wall is the way to go on that drive your not going to like to weed whip a bank it's gets old!!!
Trav 2 ай мурун
I myself would not mind a slope as long as I could mow it with mower or tractor, looking at the long run may not physically be able to weed eat, so slope being soft would help you out or just build the retaining wall, over all if your goal is to have more usable space the retaining wall will provide that

I like the concrete block idea. I did a firewood bin with them. The ones they have by me weigh like 4,000 lbs each, I had a hard time moving them and could only put two in my trailer at once.

You mentioned that you'd give up some slope and use the weed whacker. Remember the future Mike. One day using a whacker will be really tough on you. You the the machinery today. Make the area in a way that will allow you to use a mower over everything. I'm 74 now and I wonder where the years went.

concrete blocks of which ever size would do the area greatly and look sharp. Either retaining wall blocks or the big rectangle concrete blocks.

Hanging the camera off the bucket is fun. Crystal accuses me of watching the videos before she and I do together because I said "Mike should install one of those block walls instead of grading that slope down." Not 3 minutes later in your commentary, you started talking about if that would be a better way to go down by the log splitter. I laughed. She was annoyed how once again great minds thing alike. Thanks so much. God Bless.

Mike, I know you are doing all of this because you have the know how, the equipment, and it creates content for the channel...but...just curious, did you get any quotes on having someone else do the earthwork? It would be nice to get an idea of the cost differences.

That's a lot of new, loose looking shale. Shouldn;t that be compacted before you pour a slab?

@Outdoors With The Morgans Ahh! good to know. It just wasn't painfully clear to my aging pea brain where this fill was in relation to the future slab. I'd hate to see all that time, money, and effort get washed out from below. That would kinda' suck.

Mike, instead of the concrete blocks, have you given any thought to “Armour Stone” . You should be able to get them roughly the same size , but it’s natural stone that would look better with your surroundings. If you need a trailer load the price gets very reasonable. Love the show👍

Well Mike and Melissa, your timing is almost as perfect as ours was. You are building a wonderful multipurpose edifice, just as most of your flock are leaving. You will get a lot of use out of it. A great storage facility for all your toys, a great exercise place, maybe you can go into the fitness business, you will have plenty of room. Mostly kidding, but you will have LOTS of room, for everything. You will enjoy it all.

O.K. Great "Husband Sneaky Buy, Perturbed, Surprised Wife" moment there at the end! "Oh look at the dogs looking at us". Nice try Mike. Melissa... You're a GREAT sport. I actually laughed out loud at you two. Love you both! This was great comic relief after running a new chain saw I bought for work. Echo CS-680 (66cc). I cut down and cut up a big, old dead avocado tree in about 20 minutes. Avocado is pretty but very easy cutting. It was fun with that big saw though! Keep up the good work. Can't wait for the actual garage build to start. I hope the contractor lets you film them.

I like the idea of the concrete retaining blocks for that wall, may give you a little more room down there and less mowing, even though we know you don't mind mowing. Oh and by the way I hope we will see a pool being dug for Melissa, before you let the excavator go back. LOL cheers and stay safe. Hi Hunter.

I would do the wall, cut back as much as you want to have space then put the retaining wall, then might as well do the retaining wall by the new building too and do it all in one swoop, kill two birds with one stone kind a thing Another thought: Hell just cut it back to the woodline then put the retaining wall then you will have plenty of space

Every time I see all the work that excavator is doing, I think of how much money it would cost if an earthmoving contractor was doing the job. Mike would probably have a good idea, as I think he does that as part of his real job. Having the camera on the bucket was interesting. A concrete wall down on the bend would make for a easy to maintain area as well as giving you extra usable space. Melissa was so impressed and with the grease gun, I know she just wants one for herself. Thanks.
