Cleanup Continues

We spent the day working in the yard again, which is rapidly becoming one big construction zone.  The good news is that we wanted to kill off all the "grass" anyway - which was really just a mixture of crab grass and weeds - and driving the bobcat over it seems to be doing the trick.  The bad news, of course, is that our backyard is a construction zone!  I'm sure the neighbors are not impressed at the moment but hopefully the end product will be worth it.

We cleared out the remaining tree stumps, trimmed back a few more overhanging branches, moved some dirt around to level the yard, and staked out where the garage will go.  We submitted our revised plans to the county on Friday so we're crossing our fingers that we'll get our permits next week and can get started on construction soon thereafter.  You can see the orange painted stakes in the second picture showing the footprint - the garage is going to wind up being quite large and will have two stories (with a loft work space on the second floor) so it's going to take up a lot of room but I think the yard will still seem well organized once we get the patio and some landscaping in.  We'll find out once we get this project underway!
