Grading and Drainage Plan Approved!

Finally! Only three months later (even though we were told two weeks), we now have our county-approved grading and drainage plan. Quite the birthday present.

Unfortunately, that's about half an acre we have to clear. We also have to include a 9" deep pond that is about 200' long. Kinda ridiculous, eh? But it's approved and we can finally really start breaking ground.

Another problem is that this plan calls for almost 1000 cubic yards of dirt to be hauled in (nearly 2,000 tons)! Yay engineering.

Now it's time to start staking everything out.
