Yup. There’s a big hole next to our house now. The Caterpillar 315BL with a few hours of skilled operation moved alot of earth.
I took a lot more pictures but they are not very interesting. Or maybe it’s just that they don’t really convey the feeling of having our yard so dramatically reconfigured, almost as if by magic. Not having been around to watch the excavation makes it seem all the more amazing. There’s a good-sized boulder in the middle of the un-dug area. It can stay there as it will be well under the slab floor of the garage.
Some pretty silted-up drain pipe had to come out for the garage foundation. I wonder if it needs to be fixed. It looks like it was pretty clogged up anyway. And I guess the garage foundation will influence the drainage. Our cellar has always been nice and dry. I hope it stays that way.
To be continued …
