Ready for footings and tons of dirt.

After a week of digging and hammering with an enormous track hoe, the site is ready for footings. They will be formed tomorrow, June 23rd, and poured on the 24th. The temperatures have been in the 90’s so the site is getting really dusty! I’m hoping to connect the water meter and a hose bib where a sprinkler stop and waste will be so we have water on site in the next week or so.

One thing I dislike about building is how it destroys the landscape while excavating and building. We have tons of dirt that we will try to use with some landscaping berms and such.

We also have a big pile of rocks now!

Dust

View to the East. The notches in the dig are for spot footings for the deck.

View Southwest

View southwest. Maybe we should leave the big pile of dirt that hides the neighbors house!

This is what a repaired large phone line looks like :-0
