This is the last chapter for the store this year. We are leaving soon but we will be back after the winter to get the store up and running. For now I will show you some pictures of Mike and our grader, Jimmy, getting our electric line in from the building to our electric pole.
Jimmy digging the hole to put the electric wire in the ground. Nice machine:)
Mike using the reciprocating saw to cut the pipe. The electric wire needs to be inside a pipe from the ground to the building:
Once the ditch is dug, we lay the electric wire in the ground all the way to the electric pole. We cover it with a little dirt as we go.
At the other end by the electric pole. Jimmy holding the pipe while Mike cuts it:
Once the pipe is cut down, Mike feeds the wire through the pipe and feeds the wire into the electric box:
Mike finishes hooking up the electric while Jimmy fills in the ditch where the underground electric wire is:
After that is done Mike and I go back to do some grading work of our own. We need to work on the dirt along the edges of the building. It needs to be built up and re seeded. Mike uses the tractor to scoop some dirt for me to spread:
Dumping the dirt along the side of the building:
We raked out all of the rock and sloped it to the building:
We also did this on the back side and part of the back of the building. Once we got it raked, we seeded it and added straw:
Now we wait for the grass to grow:)
The back side is happy:
And behind the building:
Here is the area that was filled in where the underground electric wire is. We had so much rain that it sunk in a little. Thankfully we have a pile of dirt and Mike has his tractor. We will fix that when we work on the drive next year:
It's sad to say but that is all I have for the store this year. As many of you know it is not like Mike and I not finish a project. We have just had such a bad year here with all of the rain that we really need a change. Hopefully we will get recharged and have great weather next spring. We don't have a lot left on the store but we still have work to do.
That is all for now. Next up....getting ready to do a Flip:)
