We would like to get bids from local excavators to clear the land for our new home. Can anyone local recommend an excavator with a good eye and sense of humor?

Red face hahaha.....

No offense, but if you read here alot, the general consensus is actually AGAINST people like you clearing land for "new construction". I would be surprised if you get a referral out of this board. Just my 2 cents. Good luck, nonetheless.

Loves Mountains:

Check your PM or I guess here they call them direct messages.

Ed

...and IMHO thats a cheap shot by mmccool719, and I disagree entirely. Issues of concern mostly revolve around large developers, not individuals who are conscientious in regards to new construction. That "people like you" reference says it all.

Thanks for the reply Ed - I appreciate the info and to mmcool - I am not clearing an entire mountainside just a small area to build our small cottage in the woods - I am sure the local people will not even know we are there - we are just trying to find a quiet place to live. I have read so many negative posters who seem to want to keep the mountains for themselves which is rather short-sighted as we will contribute to the local economy and be responsible landowners. The "you're not welcome here" attitude is thankfully limited to those small-minded few which is sad because I am someone they would probably like - not an arrogant rich person who wants to rape the landscape.

mmccool, you must have missed Love mountains earlier posts in the year when she specifcally said they are looking to build a home that suits the natural shape of the land and clear only what is necessary? I think the general consensus is actually against big developers, not the individual building their own home.
