Clearing Cabin Site

DSCF4978

The trees are still mostly bare which is a great time to get started on the clearing. The higher I decide to put the cabin the better the view will be, but the harder the construction. Plumbing lines have to be laid and somehow I have to pump water uphill and get the electricity hooked up. Also, some of the trees are massive and as I will demonstrate below I am massively clueless on the chainsaw.

Some of the other trees are really tall, I’ll stay away from them for now and probably leave some of the leaning ones to the pros. I think they might be poplar trees, but not really sure. However, there is plenty of other work to be done. Smaller trees and brushes.

In a few weeks an excavator is coming out and the septic system will be put in. Decided to hire a contractor for that and it’s actually the only thing that requires a permit in Tennessee. It costs $500.00 and the TN Water Resource Department will inspect it, once installed to make sure it meets code.
