Two things to report.
The first is that I met with Kevin, my civil engineer last Friday. He did a topo survey, recording every tree, shrub, rock wall, drainage ditch, utilities, etc. From that he will design a septic plan for the county. That will also serve as the site plan to determine the location of the house on the property. Should have something in a few weeks. The good news is that he thinks all this is doable and maybe in half the time I had budgeted. His target date is completion by the end of this year! WooHoo. I better go earn some money to finish this!
Second, you all know about bringing Big John home. Then I got the small storage shed from park management. I currently live in a mobile home park with my MH. My space is limited. Big John needs some work and a Pickentote to build for it. I need some shade to work under. Since I cannot attach to anything here, I decided to build something I can dismantle when I move and reassemble at Five Talents - sort of like the London Bridge! Even got park management approval, as long as I don't attach anything permanently and move the entire thing out when I leave.
Here is a sketch.
It is sized for the finished size of a 12x16 silver tarp from HF. All the space I have here - and probably there! Estimated cost is $250 and it will support my HF hoist - another one of my back-savers.
