His big project for the last month (in the blistering heat) has been digging trenches for water, gas, and electric lines. Up until now, the water in the barn apartment has been supplied with the same water lines as supplies the water to each paddock. This is problematic in the winter because when the weather is freezing, the paddock waters must be turned off. That means no water to the apartment. Tom wanted to run a dedicated line from the well house to the barn.
So begins the trenching.
Dug with this trencher borrowed from a friend and a lot of help from Nephew.
And, thank goodness he didn't have to dig this by hand. It was 600 feet from the well to the barn. (This is the trench already filled in after the water line was run.)
