Groundbreaking Day

Finally! Finally ground breaking day arrived. Barry had been waiting for this day for a very long time - years actually. Finally, it was the day for him to warm up that new Kubota tractor and start playing in the dirt. He began the ground work for his new house - his dream house.

With its peek-a-boo view of Hales Passage, the ferry dock and Lummi Island in the distance, it's a beautiful location for his new house. He says he may mound some of the extra dirt along his fenceline and strategically plant a few trees to add just a little extra privacy. He has plans to put in more landscaping - maybe even a small pond - in this soon-to-be new front yard. He talks of planting a garden in the back yard, putting in a small orchard, and even having chickens.

Looks like Barry's fun is just beginning! Here's a slideshow of his building project so far . . .
