A LandsofAmerica.com Buyers Journey: The Barn Pad is Complete
What would have taken a week to get done, turned into 7 weeks because of the rain that settled in on Texas. It's been many weeks of rain showers. When it wasn't raining, it was cold and overcast, so the muddy roads never dried out. When you're having to deal with large equipment like this project requires, the ground can be moist, but not sopping wet or the weight will create huge ruts, the previous work will be ruined, and the project can't be completed.
The Vincik team finally got a break a couple days before Christmas. They got on the ranch and made it happen. They worked some base into good material, filled in the remaining part of the pad site, and got it all smoothed out. The guys got it done just in time to get home to spend some good Christmas time with their families. Below is a little video of some of the action and photos of the final product which ended up extremely well done.
All in all, it took just at 120 dump truck loads of material to build the base for the barn and the surrounding new roads. The pad site was on a steep elevation so steps were taken to make sure any running water was directed away from the barn site. The views from the top of this pad are wonderful and the final product's views will be even better.
