Digging the foundations

Digging foundations

Digging the foundations out. Perfect ground for building on.

Things moving ahead quickly today. Stan and Brian got busy with tapes and string and set out the house foundations. This looked like so much fun that Alan from next door and I got stuck in. In the end there were four of us with tangles of tape measures, stakes, string and spray paint.

In the end we got the house the right way round and moved onto excavating the foundations. Everything was going swimmingly until we got to the temporary electric supply cable running across the plot. The loud popping sound from under the digger turned out to be plastic deforming, not cables breaking.

So, a good day’s work and only one dead digger. Garage foundations tomorrow ready for pouring concrete on Thursday
