Range Project Update

First we cut out the sod on the back of the range tee 8 x 125 feet long.

We excavated 6 inches deep.

Had some hand work on the inside edges. 

Hauling in the stone material that goes under the brick pavers.

Plate compacting the stone.

Three pieces of 1/2 inch pipe help create the 1% drainage grade and to make the surface perfect before brick installation.

Prepping the east end while stone is being installed in the middle.  The last 6 stations will also be aimed towards the middle of the range as we angled this section on purpose.  Plus it creates a great area for demo day tents and lessons.

Brick installation started by noon on Thursday.

A 5 x 5 stencil is used to form around the future location of our new range mats.

7 out of 16 stations were finished by the end of the day on Friday.

East end stone being installed in this picture.  We should wrap up the brick installation on Wednesday, then soil and seed the edges on Thursday.  Our new mats are back ordered but we'll be using our current mats once the project is completed.
