Road construction

Our building site is about a couple of hundred yards from the county road and it looks like another wrench has been thrown in the works. In past times our local county has rented out their grader and operator to build roads for private drive ways. In fact the local grader operator was still under the impression that he could build us a road. This was a really good option as it would probably cost under a thousand dollars to have the road ready for pit run and gravel application.

Well, the county has decided that they no longer do that. They have given me a few people to contact to get quotes from commercial outfits. I haven't received an official bid yet but am dreading the 5k to 10k quote.

I've talked to a few people about putting pit run over top of the organic material (grass, black dirt, etc.) and everyone says it's a short sighted way to do it but if it costs 5k less I'm having a hard time letting go of the money.

Maybe we should move our building site closer to the county road?

But then we'd need to witch another well so we probably won't do that.
