July through September, 2012

We refer to the primitive road leading to the new shed as the “old road” because it predates our acquisition of the property and installation of the driveway. Continuing the shed construction, we had buried phone and electric cable run from the Carriage House to the shed via the old road, improved the old road to make it easier to keep open during the Winter and regraded the area around the shed to direct Spring run-off. These improvements include two culverts to help keep the road dry. The Summer has been so dry the main drive has not been compacted yet; the delay means we will be able to use the vibratory compactor on the new and improved old road— when and if it rains again.
