Step 1: Remove all debris including scrap wood, scrap metal, car parts, mower parts, animal nests and other miscellaneous goodies left by former occupants.
Step 2: Order dirt to fill in the three-foot deep hole in the NW corner of the interior and eliminate the standing water. Stand back and watch the dirt contractor sink his “bobcat” into the mud and then wait several days for the mud to dry before towing it out and finishing the dirt work.
Step 3: Contract with concrete company to poor interior slab.
Step 5: Identify your obstacles and deal with them accordingly.
Step 6: Get a sketch, blueprints, or doodle something on a bar napkin – you need a plan.
Step 7: Hire good, skilled, knowledgeable contractors and stay out of their way.
Step 8: Repeat step 5 and modify step 6 as needed – “revision” is not just another pretty word.
Step 9: Repeat step 7 ( and keep your hired help happy)
Step 10: Repeat step 8 until you can manage the rest yourself and be glad you are not to stubborn to use steps 5-7 - then you can sit back and relax.
