This is where we found ourselves at 11:00 this morning. This is the new site of Amen Farm!!
We met with our architect and our friend, neighbor and excavator operator to site the driveway, house, garage ,barn and machinery shed. The purpose of the test pits was to determine if there was any ledge extending into the meadow. The pic below shows Syd measuring an 8' hole and no ledge.
We will have two 'curb cuts' ...... one at the north end of the property that will be the access for the house and another further south to give access to the machinery shed and also make it possible for heavy equipment to access the area that will be our septic field. As soon as Dale gets the OK from the road boss he'll start the driveway construction.
This is the approximate location of the house.... looking southeast. The view from here is lovely!
To the east we see Mt Williams and Mt Fitch , to the south we see the back side of Quarry Hill( at least 80 acres on Quarry Hill is owned by the Nature Conservancy) and to the south west we see the Taconic Range. We are both very excited about this project and can't wait to start!!!
