Most expensive so far was tree and stump removal. They did some landscaping and brush removal too. That's the only work I'm hiring out. I'm going to level the back 1/4 acre of my yard where trees were and put in a car cover for boat and a 12x18 shed. I also bought one of those big goy pond above ground pools from Costco (16x30). I'm going to put a deck around it. Last I'm putting up a new fence all around. I rented a front loader and have 12 yards of fill and 12 yards of driveway gravel coming Tuesday. I also moved a giant Costco play structure from the backyard to the front. It was a huge fucking hassle. Fuck reading this I'm probably in another $20k actually.

Why would u spend 10k on "tree and brush removal." u could have bought a giant woodchipper for way less and never had to hire anyone again. Felling trees and shredding them is actually fun.

Trees were too tall and backed up to a busy road by power lines. Far outside of my abilities. My neighbor has a chipper and splitter. He offered it to me and he said he'd help with the trees. It would have taken me all summer. Tree guys did it all in two days.

There were three truck loads of these fuckers. Only one guy was up in the trees. The other dudes were grunts hauling shit out and doing things like clearing bushes. It took them two days. That would have taken me a month. I wagecuck bro.

Stump grinding alone was almost a grand. Just having the trees taken down and removed was only $2800. The trees were a cypress 'hedge' that went buck wild and hit 50'. I'm not cutting that shit down and I rarely hire anything out. Other quotes I had for just the trees were in the $6k range.

My wife got involved and started adding on other shit and next thing I know the price doubled. They did a good job though. I almost felt bad for the guy as he was stuck with her whims micromanaging every detail of the job. She gets debilitatingly particular. At one point she started crying when they took out the wrong rose bush and I didn't bat an eye but the Mexican guy was terrified. Her crying isn't that uncommon of an occurrence. After that she had him agreeing to almost anything she asked.

I've been taking down the old fencing and stacking it for a dump run. I actually know a place that takes wood with nails for $20 a load, they turn it into hog fuel. But my wife took a picture and put it on Facebook and people came and took the old shit. Even rotten boards. They really sketchy. One guy loaded some in a piece of shit minivan. He was high off his ass on what I assume is meth. I made sure garage and everything was put away before he got here anticipating some wackos.

Front loader was just dropped off. I added another $1000 in river rocks for Thursday delivery and $600 in sand for a pool base. I'm up to around $15k and I still have to do a fence. Truth be told I actually like not having a fence. You can't see our house from the back where the road is and the side with one of the neighbors, they're like 28 and never go outside. My kids have basically adjusted to nofence life and started using part of their yard for wiffle ball games and shit. My wife won't let me get away with it for very long though. At least lumber prices are way down.

I've got 10-12 yards of fill being dropped off on the back half of my property later today. I'm going to use that to level everything off as best I can. Tomorrow I have another 12 yards of gravel for the finished drive way section as well as 8 yards of river rock for the flower beds I had the mexicans clear out and another 7 yards of sand for under where the big goy pool will go. I'm going to build a level form for the sand to go in to make sure its perfectly level. I was up until 11:00 moving retaining wall stones (not even sure I'll keep these) and I'm up today ready to roll. Sucks I only have one micro dose shroom cube left. They're like chill addy. Need to order more.

All the dirt work is pretty much done. The neighbors dad has an auger attachment for his tractor to dig the fence poasts. However, I'm also fencing in the pool base, using the posts to hold in sand to level it as well as for the future fence posts and deck around it. I'm digging these by hand. Ho lee fuk I hate digging fence posts. One rock can take 15 minutes and a crow bar.

I'm going to need another 12 yards of gravel and probably 5 yards of sand. That's another grand. Wife and I are gone for a week starting Sunday so it will have to wait. Oh, I also installed a new oven and picked up a trampoline. The people with the trampoline have an amazing play structure I should go get but fuck I can't ever finish a job. There are still river rocks on part of my driveway.

One awesome thing is I can now drive the perimeter of my property. It's very handy to pull up right where you are working and drop a trailer.

I hate digging fence posts btw.
