Finally! The first trees started coming down today. As all the permits have been acquired and the other documents taken care of, the site work has finally commenced. Today they started knocking down trees in a path around the property. Along this path they will put up a silt fence. The silt fence serves as a sort of barrier, protecting the plants and wildlife from all the work (and silt) on the rest of the property. Within a few days the silt fence will be approved by inspection, a construction entrance will be made, and then we’ll be off to the construction races!
