Day 5: Getting organized and acquainted with the site.

This morning we selected our individual work projects. I was really happy to get the greywater system, as I would eventually like to live in a house that uses filtered water and outputs greyater for the yard. Then we hauled our work trailer to the site and split into a few groups. Some folks built us sturdy stairs for the trailer, some organized the trailer, others worked on pulling rocks and other features out of the lawn. By lawn, I mean lot covered in gravel. The gravel is terrible looking, but will come in handy to fill the concrete foundation. There is an old rose bush in the center of the yard that should just barely clear the edge of the new house. We are hoping to keep it alive and work around it.
