21, Where am I going to stick it?

My next problem was finding a flat spot to put the saw on, a bit of a problem with our block. I opted to hide it behind my existing workshop, which meant flattening our hay shed as well as the ground.
I constructed a new retaining wall using pine posts and sleepers which I had previously milled and had treated. We then spread a load of recycled concrete gravel around to give me a stable surface to work on.
The rocks were pushed aside from a previous retaining wall that ran alongside the hayshed. Once again the trusty old front end loader earned its keep, digging out the excavation and carting the earth to a heap, out of the way in the paddock behind.
