Tee-Pee

We found that when we were digging, we got a lot more done when the sun wasn't beating down on us. Sometimes a cloudy day did the job, but when the clouds didn't show up for work, we had to take alternate measures. Enter the tee-pee.

Herculean feat

Finally done with all the digging! By the Gods am I happy that's over!

This past weekend we finally finished all the digging for the Sioux Studio foundation and dry well...one shovel at a time. The foundation was roughly 42 linear feet, 20" wide and 5' deep, and the dry well was 34" diameter at 7' deep. All dug by hand. Now there's a way to work off all that fat you stored up during winter.
