Digging the Foundation Footing
In any case, the wall would have to be stepped and stepped in several places. Armed with our plan we had the surveyor mark the foundation corners. We started digging and taking grades with the transit as we went. The digging went smoothly. all the rock that we brought in for the pad was excavated and placed in the centre where it will be used to fill in the foundation for the slab.
The footings are now completely dug out and have been "tracked in" using the excavator. Tomorrow I will tamp the footing areas for a couple of hours so we have a good stable base for the footings. The surveyor will mark the final positions for the foundation and we will start forming for the footing on Wednesday....weather pending!
