It is now full speed on getting the site prepared ,that meant felling about another 10 trees out to about 40 meters from the house to satisfy fire regulations. Many a week end spent hooking up a pull rope to a tree the farthest up the tree we could with a ladder then through a block right angles to the winch on the troupie sue would then tennsion up the winch and i would cut the tree down and most but not all of the time it would fall where we wanted it to then the slow job of docking it up cutting branches and hauling it away to the various dump we had set up
Wayne Emms then came over with his tractor and did some site leveling enough to get us started on setting out the floor plan and many thanks to wayne for his help
