House plat
NOTE: The plat is aligned with true north.  The lot is not aligned with either the street or true north.
Valley at rear of property
Valley at the back (South) of the lot.  The creek is only wet when it rains.
Stumps
The previous owner cut down a lot of trees but left the stumps so you couldn't mow or even use a Bush Hog. 
I bought a mid-sized Terramite T9 Backhoe (about 2-1/2 tons) to remove them.

T9 and Stump
The T9 is barely able to get the large stumps out of the ground. 
I have to fill the front bucket to move them or the big trees as their weight causes the T9's front wheels to come off the ground.

Building sketcht
Sketch of the red iron building. The lower back wall was used to decrease the building volume and hopefully lower heating and cooling costs.
The 24 foot bay on the left side of the lower skletch will be added later. It willbe used to park my trailers and F-250out of the weather.

Interior sketch
This is the current interior layout. The bathroom and Office/clean room will be finished.  The building has 8" steel thick walls.  This sketch is being used to locate the plumbing and electrical service in the concrete slab.
