Cool. I consulted your rules on this just tonight for some upkeep to a manor for one of my players. :)

May nee dot adjust. 60/2000=33 lbs a day ? A PC can typically carry 3x that easy. Maybe base it on Carrying El factors. Just a quick thought. Course it depends on foot or horse or cart?, etc. Assume you mean human here.

Looks good ...hrmmm...

Could research the old Western migration stats. Some mule trains could do wonders over mountains and move massive loads.

For construction I'd like Upkeep factors. I had to do some formulae for a Horse Ranch and City Manor ..think its fair but could use some reliable figures :) If you find time.

Figure man/ox could do what 1 foot per second?
LE is 15' diameter so figure 45 feet per phase but can do it in a wide swipe so 45x15? in one phase. :) If he wanted to.
Son is just a tall dude. Need a supernatural Ox to match :)
But if he did it with a really big shovel or limb...
could vary but I'd say 30x5' area in one swipe per phase?
Son would need tools LE might not.
