Having dreamed of this moment since the Cordwood adventure began in 2008, we finally welcomed the builders and their big machinery onto site.
And like a small boy, I watched in amazement as the 21 tonne digger ripped up tree stumps, shattered the concrete bases of former mushroom sheds and knocked over trees!
There could be some topsoil arriving too.
This enabling work will prepare the ground for foundations and septic tank .....
Never before has the installation of a septic tank been so eagerly awaited!
