This is the north side of the cutout and my small house will snuggle back into this part of the hill. The rocks at the bottom are the ones I am moving (one by one) to extend the berm under the pinyon tree. The view above is toward the top of the hill. This was taken just before dark, the shadow is from the trailerstead and carport, both of which will be removed.
Top left shows the big pinyon tree mentioned earlier. This is the south end of my current patio and proposed greenhouse. The fence is 2×12 and 2×10 and will be recycled into the front wall of the Wabi Sabi greenhouse (outside gate and to the left). The 24 inch raised beds will run to the opposite, north end, and the greenhouse will open into the garage. I will top this with an A-frame covered with clear or opaque roofing panels. A greenhouse! On the right is the trailerstead. I hope to sell and remove it after I move in to the house. Once gone, I will make a block fence all around, opening on the other side of this greenhouse, and plant an orchard in this deep soil. Trees to the west and fruiting shrubs closer to the greenhouse, it will Be 14×60.
Here is the infamous carport that I need to empty and tear down. The wabi sabi triangular building is attached on the right. Behind you can see the south wall of the cutout and the dead trees I dragged in to break up and use in the bottom of my raised beds like Hugelkultur. The building parts will morph into a trellis on the triangle building for a Russian Kiwi (pair).
The pallets will become pallet project somethings, to be determined. I have seen a few interesting things online.
I just keep making chores for myself….
