July 5, 2018 – Today was a good day. Wolfley Excavating was back on site to spread stone for an expanded parking area. They managed to get three loads of 2A limestone delivered and spread before the quarry closed for the day
Around 3:30 PM they dropped the bucket on the skid loader and hooked up a 24″ diameter auger. With the auger attached they began excavating the footings. In a little over 2 hours they completed the remaining 16 footings.
The drilling went much better than I had expected. There were not too many roots but there was more river rock underneath the living room door. This caused the auger to jump off the marked. We will have to hand dig to correct the location.
The front yard now looks like a mine field.
Once again there was a threat of a pop up rain storm. As a precaution we covered all nineteen of the footings. Thankx to Grammy and Fannie for buying 700 traps off of the clearance rack.
