all gone

well we started taking the trees down on 17th dec and now on 31st - day 14 - they are all gone but lots of clearing up to do. 0f course christmas came in the middle of the project to delay us and i had to give up hauling logs by day 4 but have spent many hours cooking providing sustenance for the boys who have worked their socks off and we are very grateful. now its cleared the plot looks enormous just got to get going now with the build!
