On our frugal homestead, when we need things done, reaching for the best tool is most times not an option. Because A.) The best means expensive and B.) We ain’t got the money honey!
Take this spot for instance, it would have been nice to have fired up the tractor in moving a huge concrete cornerstone into it. Not an option. What’s a hillbilly to do?
Observe! Rock, chain, wood, and the hillbillies who could!
We hooked the chain to the poor man’s tractor, the Honda Foreman. And I gave er’ the gas!
HH placed one wood fence post in front of the other as the cornerstone slowly inched it’s way to the spot, resetting the rear post to the front and readjusting the chain at each step.
Seven or eight incremental moves later an we were spot on our target.
A little hillbilly know how and some doing what you can, where you are, with what you have attitude!
We began this home outdoor project last spring. A revamp of our crude fire pit area. I’m excited to show you our progress as we re-use items from around the homestead.
In the meantime you might dig this humdinger of a recycle project we did earlier.
