  Roots 300x225 Site clearing                                                   The lads spent a few days hand digging tree trunks out. When the neighbor had a loader in for some work I got him to dig some deep roots out for us. Some things need mechanical assistance? Should have taken that Water oak in the background as well Mike….  
Be sure to take out all the roots in the foundation. They burn pretty easily once they are out. We cleared most of the roots where the future two domes will be built.

 

         Much to our delight it rained pretty hard once we had the basic foundation dug. So we tapped re-bar into the ground at water level, around the perimeter on the outer edge of the footings to get accurate levels!    
You can extend by using a level on a straight piece of wood, from the center, out and around, peg to peg.

 The kids were sitting on a bench and one said to the other.. “check the old man working”
You just have to love them!       But  “time is on my side”  to do all these things?

 Now that Water Oak being covered should have been taken out .. I later had to remove fruit trees to drop the tree, which was hollow. Typical of water oaks.  Learn…       
The earth being removed from the foundation is virgin soil and was later used to build hügels.
