Swale Tale


Construction Daily Log, Patty Parsons Build

Date: July 29, 2011

Rob Abbott reporting

On Site:
Volunteers: Rob Abbott
Contractors: Ruttan's Rock

Visitors: Nan stopped by

Daily Log: After many calls to many contractors, Kevin Ruttan of Ruttan's Rock came
through and with his mini-excavator created the requires swale at the edge of the property.
I cleared a few limbs and was able to layout the fence line and mark for the fence posts.
Hopefully, there won't be rocks where we have to bore for the posts.

Tuesday, I'll call to arrange for the swale to be inspected. Grass seed will need to be
added, but this should wait until after the fence and shed are completed as there will be a
number of areas that need to be patched.

Note: Kevin Ruttan donated his time and equipment for this work. His father, Bill is sawing
the logs and donating most of the fencing material. This makes 4 Ruttans actively involved
in this build.

Action/Follow-Up Items
Rob: Arrange for fence lumber

Next Days/Week Plan:
Tuesday- Arrange inspection

The fence construction will depend on when the lumber is available.

Materials/Tools: Rent post hole digger.

Inspections: Final inspection for grading.
