Rather than renting a trailer for several thousand dollars and having nothing to show for it after construction is complete, we authorized the purchase of this portable building.The construction manager will outfit it with power, insulation, and heat. After completion of the project, they’ll deliver it to the farm core, where it will serve as a utility building. One end is a garage door, so we’ll be able to store a tractor or truck in it.
The dark hump in the driveway that looks like a sleeping dog is actually the top of a knob of bedrock. For the time being, workers are driving around it. Within the next few days, it will be broken up and removed. We’re waiting for the four-ton hydraulic hammer to come to the site. (Four tons is the force rating, not how much the hammer weighs.)
