Big news: the excavation has begun! Who knew a hole in the dirt could be so exciting? Digging started on Monday, and already we have a roughed-in driveway, and a partially dug foundation area and septic tank location. Part of the foundation area is a rock too large to be dug out; it will have to be blasted apart first. We always knew this was a high probability when building in the mountains, although so far it has been a pleasant surprise that we don’t need to blast any of the area for the utilities trench. Right now we are waiting on the quote from the demolitions company, and then: BOOM!
It’s a little hard to get good depth perception in photos, but here are some pictures.
I’ll update again soon! Thanks for following along.
