"So he called its name Rehoboth, saying, 'For now the LORD has made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.' " Genesis 26:22b

Barn part 1

Our barn site is officially excavated. It is behind and to the left of our house.
I would post an aerial photo but, as we haven’t sold enough eggs to pay for a helicopter, we don’t have one.

Prior to excavation…The gravel you see in the picture is the top of our driveway.

Finished excavation…Complete with drainage swale. (A special formation of the dirt to direct rain water away from the barn.)

Dumping gravel…We got 6 dump truck loads of rock total.

Finished dumping gravel…The white spot near the top of the picture is the barn foundation, made from very fine rock. (Called screenings)…And isn’t the sky lovely!?

Breathtaking sunset!

And so my post has people pictures in it, here’s a recent shot of Samuel and Daddy driving our tractor:

    I love your uses of the word “excavation”- it makes me think of fossils and treasures and things. Can’t wait to see what will come next.
