Spring has arrived and the weather has been perfect. Several dry days made it really easy to navigate the woods. So I decided to go exploring. I was very pleased to find iron stakes hammered into the ground at our lot corners in back. I'm not sure when they placed them.
This is the current phase of our home.
And this is our lot plan. I have labeled all of the corners to coincide with all my pictures. It may be hard to visualize. The green are the trees. The blue is this cute little creek I found down behind our lot. The kids are going to be so excited.
The little hands point to the stakes and general direction of the next corner.
From the curb line
Luckily this stake is right next to a large tree. Easy to locate.
The view from point C to the house. It really slopes down on this side of the house.
From point C to D. Most of this is small brush-like trees that we will clear out. There is actually grass growing in the underbrush.
Halfway to point D. You can see the clearing beyond and our two back stakes.
This is the point I heard the sound of water and was delighted to see a small creek.
From point D facing back to point C. I estimated the direction as best I could through the trees.
From point D to point E. This slope in the clearing will be perfect for sledding in the snow. The rest of the clearing beyond our lot is green space for the development and won't be built on.
