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:

A Little Bit of Irony

Yesterday we got a call from the house building company saying that our house would need to come on three trucks as opposed to the original two, because they had underestimated the space that the 4 dormers would need on the trailer. That truck was scheduled to be delivered today around noon. The other two trucks with the rest of our house units are scheduled for delivery Friday, and the house setting is supposed to take place on Monday, October 1st.

This morning, we were notified that due to the severe fog and rain in our neck of the woods today the first delivery truck would be delayed untill tomorrow.

Also this morning, Josh got a call from a very bewildered FedEx delivery man. He informed Josh that he was at our address, (that is, our new address), with the flooring supplies. The good news the man said, the supplies are two weeks early, the bad news, there’s no house to drop them off at.

The irony of this situation? Well the house, which was originally scheduled for delivery 3 weeks ago has not arrived, while the flooring supplies which were not supposed to arrive for another 2 weeks arrived this morning. At our property. Where there is no house. Where it is raining.

All this to say, I am very thankful that God has written the story and already knows what the ending will be!! While I often do not understand God’s timing, or His way of doing things I am grateful that He is in control!

Now because I don’t like to post without pictures here are a couple of random ones from the past several weeks that have not really fit in with any of my previous posts.

Josh and Daniel talking about how to bush-hog around the trees.

Samuel driving the bulldozer with Mr. Horne (The owner of the excavation company we used for the driveway and the basement.)

As Samuel later said, “Making big, dirty, dust clouds!’ Just like a boy (smile)
