Heavy equipment gathering around our old barn here the other day. Two forestry machines, two diggers and trucks.

Forestry status

While out running today I did check out the current status of the forestry work. They have now started cutting in Steindalen, the first part is very easy accessible.

Had to promise my kids that we should not cut down this three

Grinding the concrete floor

February 19th, 2015

Before finishing the floor I had to grind it to level it as much as possible. Pretty straight forward apart from the wastewater splashing on the walls, but after covering them it was no issue.

Call in the cavalry, in other words - me!

Took a walk earlier today. up to where the forestry machine is currently working, Bjønnemyra. Did post a picture from my preparations earlier this year "Logging preparations - the forest road" The picture below is taken today at almost the same spot

Here are some more "before" pics, from the first they when the machine started logging.

Then later, when home they did call me and asked if I could help them out with one big tree, a great Norwegian spruce to big for the forestry machine to safely cut down. Simply because this particular machine is the smallest one, not suited for threes of that size. And since that being the only one here, it was not a problem until the last day.

I did cut while the machine used the crane to make sure that the three did not fall in the wrong direction. I must admit that I feared that I had to do it all by myself, while the professionals where watching...

I just parked here

January 30th, 2015

Old one, happened a couple of weeks ago, but since this is somewhat my diary I just had to post this picture. The conditions was somewhat tricky that day. When I came driving I saw the car parked just outside the road. At first I thought it was someone working, but I soon realized that the car was stuck in the ditch.
