I certainly wouldn't want to be the full time bartender.

JBaker,

You've got a real problem there, not dissimilar to mine: good topsoil over clay plus springs. Looks like you'll have to dig around the perimeter, about 12 feet square, and put in crushed stone and Big O drainage pipe, covered by more stone, to drain it off to lower ground. It's more work, of course, but you can't build in your climate unless that water goes elsewhere, or you'll be looking at mighty frost heave come winter.

How do local contractors/farmers solve the problem?

Jim

I'm betting that they don't think about building pizza ovens....

I've got a few calls out to friends in the business, I'll report back as I get info.
