Our Ashfield Odyssey

Part 1: Discovering the Land -- April 2004 to January 2005 -- p. 3

Before we would sign the final purchase/sale contract, we needed to have a successful perc test. Early in the morning of September 13th we met at the site with an excavator, an engineer, and the two realtors. We all waited with high anticipation as the first holes were dug.
