A Driveway...to a Cleared Lot!
I was hoping that the footing was going to be sitting higher on the lot. It is actually sitting down below the road much more than I had originally anticipated. However, my excavation guy, Jason Wade, says it won't be an issue. We have dug down to solid ground in a couple of places and it is very, very, solid. Once the pad area is excavated, we'll lay a rock pad. We'll track that in with his excavator and then rent a roller for a day to roll as we go. We are expecting to make quite a bit of headway in the coming week. We hope to finish moving the soil and mark out the pad for the foundation tomorrow. On Tuesday we will bring in some loads of rock to bring everything up to level and create a pad for the foundation. We'll then get the well drillers in to drill the well. A surveyor will mark out the corners of the foundation and away we go!
