Cold Springs Ranch: A hard day's work, the week of Saturday, July 15, 2000

A hard days work, Saturday July 15, 2000

This weekend I used Grady's tractor to backfill all the retaining walls. This was harder work than I thought it would be. Dad did a lot of the hard work while I was on the tractor. We got the area around the house cleaned up and looking a lot better. Unfortunately I was working all day and didn't shoot any video until after we were done, and very tired....

We are all taking a break inside where it's a cool air conditioned 70 degrees. Here Timber and Dad are relaxing.


Here's a long shot of the back retaining wall. We got all the dirt up and over the wall and got some rough grading done too. All of this wall will be rocked.

Here's the wall from the other end. Dad just came out of the house and Timber is running out to me. We've put down straw all around to the house to try and keep the mud off the log walls. .

Timber settles down on the temporary patio. We've had a tough time with all the mud around the house. It has rained almost every day since the middle of June!
