Thought I'd post a quick update and let you all know we have finally started! We were still getting snow storms into the last week which suspended the planned start a bit, but not too bad. It is Northern Michigan after all and it was a bit too much to think that I could break ground before April.
This is a photo of the site as of Sunday, April 6th and I am very happy to report that the crew clearing the trees called today to say that all trees you see marked in this photo are down. Tomorrow the stumps are to be removed and then some fill brought in to elevate and level the site. We'll now have to wait until the county lifts the spring weight restrictions on the roads before this happens, but I wanted to let you know that progress is finally being made. We're on the way!
