I'm still here too.
I have been trying to get a new barn built since late October.
Materials delivered October 27. Then I had to fight with the surveyor and they still got it wrong. Finally put in for a permit on November 11. They gave initial approval on November 14 but then had to wait until December 4 to get the final approval from the environmental people, if you have a septic tank on the property they have to approve the permit.
Then I finally get a weekend off, so I rent a Little Beaver earth auger... it doesn't have enough power to punch through the hard yellow clay we have about 30" down. Then to add insult to injury we had about 2.5" of rain a couple of days earlier and I had one hole collapse due to a saturated sandy clay pocket full of groundwater.
Now I am in a holding pattern until mid-January in hopes it will dry up and I will get another break from work. I will rent a heavier piece of equipment and hopefully get it done then.
Just for the record, the barn is 32'x40'x16'. RV goes on one side the other will have a climate-controlled shop on the lower level and dry storage on the upper.
