Re-Shaping the World as We Know It

As I sit here in our Super Secret Undisclosed location, hunched over a computer screen like Dr. Evil,
stroking my hairless cat. I can't help from using our countries spy satellites to spy on myself. I use the Hubble Space Telescope to look down on our land to see what it looks like from outer space.
This is our land in a certain midwestern state. Sorry for the quality of the picture. I may be an evil genius but I still don't know how to take a screenshot from my Chromebook computer. Lets zoom in closer.
And closer.
That group of trees in the middle is our focal point. They are the only pine trees on the property. Everything to the left of those we have cleared now in preparations for our garage. I shall have a talk with NASA to fly over and get a more up to date picture.

The work has finally begun on our new approach road. We can't believe it.
This is looking down to the highway from our hill. They have removed the shoulder so that they can pour a concrete approach.
They have also installed the new culvert. In our wildest dreams, we never thought we would own a culvert. But look at us now. Is that a sign of success? Hmmm.

We have signed all of the papers to get our new garage going. We have gotten estimates for wells, septic systems , electrical systems and land prep. So with all of that done we decided to go out of town for a little while. And of course as we did that everything started to move. This approach we were hoping would have been done while we were in Alaska, but it wasn't. They started the culvert weeks ago and then nothing. Soon as we get to South Dakota the phone calls start. At least the project is rolling again.
Here they have started cutting into the hillside.
Nearly done. It doesn't take long once they start and have the right equipment.

Once we get back to our super secret location, we hope to be able to pull right into our very own little piece of paradise. More picture to follow.


  1. Wow! You’re own culvert! Maybe one day we’ll be culvert owners again! Until then we’ll have to live through your pictures. Have a great visit.

    1. Thanks. We love our culvert! We can't wait to drive over it.

  2. We own a culvert too but I think yours is much bigger than ours!

    1. Yep. You can always judge a man by the size of his culvert. Thanks for the fun times.

  3. A culvert. I believe that calls for a steak dinner.
