In just over one week the hole in the ground was filled and the above ground work was ready to begin.
Today the machines went to work creating a hole 4 feet wide and somewhere between 4’5″ and 5’5″ deep, depending on the yard’s original grade.
The garage contractor stopped by to prepare for the garage foundation excavation. He wanted to expose the house’s existing foundation where the new foundation will meet up with. He hacked away at the house to get his task done and that night I went to work saving the rest of the original siding.
