Some Holy Scrap projects are Mikey's and others mine. Of course many we do together. You can tell this fire pit flagstone project is mine because it involves lifting rocks, digging and fire. Mikey generally avoids all of the above. I built the fire pit when we first got the property figuring that it was the heart of the piece of land. Now I'm adding ring of flagstone that will go 8' out from the center. Around that ring I'll add a ring of mesquite trees to make the whole thing like a cove. For day 1 I cleared the ring and measured everything out.
I'll also be rereading one of our favorite books titled Moving Heavy Things. It's a small book with ingenious ideas for moving things and fun stories of how people have moved things. One example I remember is waiting for winter to make a frozen water path between object and it's destination. Push object along the ice and in the spring it's in it's place.
