Started getting past the planning stage of the operation and getting ready to make the decision on which of the bidders I am going to pick for the project. First I shall need to get a tree service in westchester ny to clear off the lot. My original plan was to find some guys who would do it for the wood that they could harvest. I figured that there were a good number of nice oak trees on the land and some of it would be good for lumber. Of course all of those guys started telling me about how none of those trees were any good for that, they wanted to get paid for the job and then get to sell the wood that was usable. I used to know this old guy who would have come in there with a dump truck and a bull dozer and cleared it off pretty quickly and cheaply, but he was old back then and I do not think it any use to try to hunt him down. He must be in his 80’s by now. The location is really good for what I have in mind and I am thinking that it shall be even better in a year or so when they get the highway completed, assuming that the money is forthcoming in the state, local and federal transportation budget. My plan does not pivot upon the highway getting built, in fact it would likely be impractical if the highway was a sure thing. That would make this sixteen acre plot a bit more valuable than I could afford to be honest. Instead if the highway is built that will make this project a real slam dunk. In fact that would probably lead me to sell it out for a big profit and then start on something else.
