Next up was getting more regular access to the property instead of just parking along the side of the private road or popping over the drainage ditch and sorta 4 wheeling it around the edge. 


We should describe the situation of the lot; its a flag lot, accessible thru a gate via a private road that serves a 12 lot neighborhood. We're basically lot 13 of the neighborhood, not part of the neighborhood or subject to their CC&R's but we do have a road/easement agreement on everyone's deed that gives us guaranteed access, for an annual road fee. We liked the idea that we knew after reading the CC&R's that our future neighbor's houses would be nice, their lots well maintained, but that we wouldn't be subject to any of their restrictions or approval processes.  

So we very carefully read word for word the road/easement agreement that had been done years before between the original property owner and the developer of the 12 lots. Given the road is private, behind a gate, we didn't need to get the county's approval. So basically we decided where we wanted it, staked it, waited a week and then used the tractor to start digging it out. We did sent an email to the developer once we had it staked (before digging) to give him the heads up about what we were going to do, give him a high level overview of all our development goals, but we didn't wait for an approval from him. We did in nicer fashion than I am making it sound but now, years later writing this journal entry, I'm a bit jaded about our interactions with the developer so my comments may have a sharp edge to them. As one might say, there is a whole lotta history there now. More about that in another post.
